NYU Shanghai Dance Workshop

Introduction to Intermedia Collaboration
Pauline Jennings
Date & Time
Thursday, November 2, 2017 - 17:00 to 18:30
Room 808, 1555 Century Avenue, Pudong New Area, Shanghai

This event has been postponed.  The new date will be announced in the coming weeks.

In this workshop, we will work toward understanding and developing our individual artistic voices, as well as, our role in collaborative groups. Participants are guided through a series of games and exercises to assist in developing a shared language for artistic creation across disciplines. These exercises will lead to the creation of collaborative, group performance works that seek to address the question of "How does one integrate many diverse ideas and beliefs into a whole while keeping individuality intact?” 

The workshop is ideal for students coming from diverse backgrounds including art, theater, dance, literature, science, and engineering. No prior performance experience is necessary and all skill sets are welcome. Instruments, video cameras, lights and projectors will be provided. 

Pauline Jennings a contemporary dancer and choreographer, is primarily interested in developing emergent forms, responsive systems, and modes of audience interactivity for intermedia performance. Her stage and interactive installations have been performed in festivals and showcases nationwide, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Merce Cunningham Studio, EMPAC (Emergent Media and Performing Arts Center, RPI), and ODC Theater. Internationally, her work has been shown by venues including the Museumsquartier Wien, Institut Intermédií (Prague), ProART International Choreography Platform (Brno), Eastern Bloc (Montreal), Primo Piano LivinGallery (Lecce), and Takt Kunstprojektraum (Berlin).

Jennings currently teaches dance at Saint Michael's College in Vermont. Previously, she has served as a Visiting Artist for the Mills College Dance Department’s MFA Repertory Dance Company and has also lectured and taught master classes at the University of Applied Arts (Vienna), University of California at Berkeley, Arizona State University, Amherst College, Dartmouth College, University of Maine, College of Santa Fe, and University of New Mexico. Jennings holds an MFA in Dance Choreography and Performance from Mills College.

The Program on Creativity + Innovation (PCI) is sponsoring the event, and Eliot Gattegno, Clinical Associate Professor of Business and Arts, will introduce Pauline Jennings and the workshop.
