LIQUID STRENGTH with Christal Brown at Bates Dance Festival's Professional Training Program.
Brown teaches excerpts of her evening length work, The Opulence of Integrity. This work was originally performed at the 2011 Guggenheim Works in Process series with collaborator, Fred Ho, and was reconceived in 2013 as multimedia dance theater production that illustrates the life and legacy of Muhammad Ali. Because the work is created from Brown’s eclectic movement background, dancers will be challenged physically and artistically throughout the process.
Christal Brown’s “Liquid Strength" (A technique laboratory focused on moving, intention, and analysis) combines the focus and intention of a meditative practice with a series of exercises designed to train the body in articulate expression as well as athletic execution ; Brown's class focuses on developing the total artist. Exercises will focus on alignment, torso and spinal flexibility, clarity of focus, upper body strength, lower body strength, and abdominal control. Working to transform philosophical notions of being into movement explorations, students will discover intersections between technique and performance : yielding transference.
