Workshop Description:
Bill Coleman uses a methodology of movement that he has developed through his life as a dancer.  It is the accessing of an embodied cognitive state to explore movement and approach performance and technical practice. Allowing for a dancer a more embodied connection to both movement and performance. This work aims for a heightened awareness of the senses that induces both physical control and a freedom of movement, allowing participants to access new territories of physical exploration.

Bill  has danced with Bill T Jones/Arnie Zane Company, Martha Graham Dance Company, Toronto Dance Theatre, Tere O'Connor, Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault, Wiesbaden Ballet, William Douglas Danse and currently Tedi Tafel and Dance Theatre David Earle. He regularly collaborates with diverse groups and communities in the creation of one-of-a-kind theatrical events. Most recently Bill created Hymn To The Universe performed with the legendary Sun Ra Arkestra, Inverted Mountains with John Oswald, Emile Morin in Banff National Park and OutSideIn, a 3D film by Anne Troake with Carol Prieur which was screened at the 2015 Venice Biennale.
