Saturday 1:00 – 3:00pm
In this workshop, Murielle is excited to share some aspects of the creative process of her solo “Brown” premiering on December 3rd as part of DIDA Season 4. She will invite participants to dive into curious physical explorations, investigating their individual and communal movement “repertoire”. She will seek to build stamina and confidence to face both the familiar and the unfamiliar and will invite the emergence of unknown physicality and new qualities of presence in movement and performance.
During the creation of Brown, Murielle Elizéon explored through various exercises utilizing somatics, imagery, and improvisation prompts, pathways to uncover and excavate layered movement material linked to personal history, as a way to tell stories beyond language and narration, using the archaeology of the body as a source, a creative potential that can manifest in physical forms.
Murielle Elizéon is a choreographer and performer currently based in Saxapahaw, NC. Her individual and collaborative work has been presented in Germany, France, Poland, Switzerland, Belgium, Finland and the US. She regularly teach classes and workshops in movement and dance both internationally as well as locally, and is co-directing Culture Mill, a performing arts laboratory based in Saxapahaw, NC dedicated to fostering creative community and collaboration through artist residencies, educational outreach and original artistic projects.
