Through a series of experiments and exercises we will use our bodies as primary investigators to define and examine the larger political, social, and organizational choreographies already at work in public spaces. Together we will increase our awareness of the ways our own and other bodies are informed by systems such as architecture, urban planning, transit, behavioral norms, surveillance, as well as our own expectations, in order to investigate how improvisation might work as a tool to increase our awareness and agency within these intersecting systems.

Taught by: Brandin Steffensen, Zena Bibler, and Katie Schetlick for CLASSCLASSCLASS.

Inspired by the collaborative work of architect Lawrence Halprin, the designer of Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall, and dance icon Anna Halprin, the dance score lead audience members (including the random passerby and Sunday brunch goer) on a tour of Lawrence’s design through his wife Anna’s medium—movement.
