Mia Martelli – Workshop
February 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Dance Workshop with Mia Martelli
Tidal/Volume (definition: the amount of air passing into and out of the lungs during normal breathing)
I understand dancing as echolocation. It is a way of making sense of what’s happening inside and outside me. Improvisation is a space to make choices based on pure expression rather than coherency. Technique is a question of, how broad is my access to tone in my body? I believe this spectrum can be widened through anatomical visualization, breath, and connecting to the pelvic floor. This is the site of the “volume knob” of tone in the body.
Saturday 2/26, 1-3pm, $15
Mia Martelli is a multi-media performance artist. Her work is unpolished, but cared for. She explores how environments are built through live performance, and how stories are told using cultural ephemera. Mia’s dances have been supported by AUNTS, Queer Spectra Arts Festival, and The School for Contemporary Dance and Thought. Her videos and visual art have been published by Queerly Contemporary Festival, GRRL Haus Cinema, and various independent zines and publications. She collaborates as a performer for NYC-based artists Chloe London, Jessie Young, and Jordan Demetrius Lloyd.
