“A Red Poppy In a Field of Grass”
A Dance Improvisation Class
When you are dancing, have you ever felt the room or the world come to you and felt like a lone red poppy in a field of grass? You become acutely aware that you are perceivable to others, distinguishable from the field around you. I am curious what we do when this moment happens. Do we shrink or expand? Do we demand attention? Do we hold it? Do we disappear? Do we wait, and witness what is happening? Do we act, tentatively or decisively? Do we call out for help? Or try to include others in these moments? Do we hold on, fearful that this moment will pass?
I’m curious how dancing creates opportunities to learn about ourselves, what our affinities are, and who we might be if tried something new when the world comes to meet us. Come, invite yourself to be seen, by others and the more than human world.
Chris Aiken has been exploring dancing, making dances, and facilitating spaces for others to dance, for a long time now. His work has flowed from an ongoing curiosity about how the ways we orient in the world shapes our creativity and expression. His eco-poetic model of working seeks to further ways to intertwine the poetic imagination with the more than human world. He has toured internationally for many years and is an Associate Professor at Smith College, where he directs the graduate program.
