2017 Spring Teaching Artist Stephanie Skura: Open Source Form
Open Source Forms combines Skura's decades of research and practice in radical composition techniques and 12 years experience as a core Skinner Releasing Technique teacher. Participants will explore fundamental elements of improvisation, scores, drawing, writing, speaking & sounding.
"A radical & perpetual innovator", Stephanie has created interdisciplinary movement-based performances for over 30 years. Her process focuses on the power and totality of each performer, collaboratively discovering & developing material.
Called "a major American experimentalist", she has an international reputation for adventurous work, performing and teaching in 32 of the United States and 14 countries. Her New York City-based touring company performed worldwide for 15 years.
Skura's current work, including Surreptitious Preparations for an Impossible Total Act, Sacrilege is Needed. Competency is Hell, The Corduroy Prayer, Two Huts, and Noir Noir Noir, integrates a radically visceral approach to language with dance & theater.
