We Are Like Rivers, We Are Rivers: Movement, Action and Art Through Metaphor and Simile

 


Dance is the hidden language of the soul - Martha Graham

 

 

We Are Like Rivers, We Are Rivers: Movement, Action and Art Through Metaphor and Simile

 

In this workshop taught by Peter DiMuro, participants will work with simile and metaphor - and related lessons stemming from them - in two parallel ways. In the first "doing" way,  we will create mini-dances based on simile and metaphor translations into movement. The second way, the "concept/reflecton" mode, explores how we as teachers and artists  can use metaphor and simile as thought processes to build our own unique, self-sustaining ways of creating fresh approaches in learning exchanges in the classroom and the world at large. This workshop will be clearly applicable to both classroom and dance studio, user-friendly and standards-based.
