Where the Dance and Stories Are
"Mischievous Obedience" — dance performances and workshops inspired by the works of Maurice Sendak
This 3-part program for young audiences is constructed around the works of great American children's author Maurice Sendak — introducing participants to the Dance Fundamentals of Space, Body, and Time.
A 1 hour session includes:
· 30-40 min dance workshop, in which participants explore aspects of 1 of the 3 dance fundamentals. Participants are provided with simple instruments and scarfs, to further awaken the senses and support movement quality.
· Interactive Reading of one of Maurice Sendak's works. The children engage in the story telling through guided choreography and with attention to rhythm, language and movement.
· Dance Performance, 5-10 min, inspired by the book. Participants get to witness a professional dancer perform as they rediscover aspects of their own movement explorations.
· Discussion. A guided dialogue as to what participants saw, felt, and explored throughout the event.
