During this time of staying at home, we’d like you to join us in our distance art-making project. On our website and on social media, we’ll share prompts and process and invite you to join us in this bird-inspired adventure and our 13th season.
Sarah Bush Dance Project is grateful for our year-long residency with Richardson Bay Audubon Center. Though it won’t look as we had imagined, we are adapting. The dancers are currently trying a new work-from-home process. We start the week with a check-in and discussion of relevant topics. From this we decide on a prompt and assignment, create movement in our own neighborhoods, then “gather” at the end of the week to develop the material as a group, either in video chats or (when it feels ok to do so) outside with a 6 foot distance between us.
Below is a sampling of SBDP dancers’ responses to the #2 prompt:
“Express your colorful self. Be the light that moves and bends over the ridges, like the sun flashing a rainbow through hummingbird feathers.”
Below is a sampling of SBDP dancers’ responses to the #1 prompt:
“Spread your wings and find a balance. Fold and unfold your wings. Move slowly while feeling the air.”
