Powering Up Bodies/Powering Down Emissions: A Movement Workshop to Inspire a Climate Movement with Carrie Hanson & Alex Rose

October 19, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm CDT

What can an individual body — or a group of bodies — express on the subject of climate change? What sequence of gestures or entanglement of limbs can tell the story of a 500-year rain event or the melting of polar ice? In this open workshop, fall 2019 Interdisciplinary Artist-in-Residence Carrie Hanson will share ideas and inspiration for Floe, her forthcoming dance theater piece about climate change that premieres at the Wisconsin Union Theater in January 2020. She is joined by underwater photographer, marine biologist, and Ocean Geographic science editor, Alex Rose.

No previous dance or theater experience is required. Participants will be asked to wear clothing that they can easily move in.

Registration is full!

Participants will take part in an informal showing of material generated during the workshop from 1:00 – 2:00 pm to the public.
