Partnering with All Five Senses – Gibney - NYC (2019)


  • GIBNEY: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center 280 Broadway New York, NY, 10007 United States (map)

Pilobolus is taking over Gibney's weekly partnering classes to offer a 4-week series:

  • February 6 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

  • February 13 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

  • February 20 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

  • February 27 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

In this two-hour class, students explore Pilobolus’ uniquely creative partnering techniques. Participants connect with individuals and space, expanding awareness and opening their senses. By turning attention outward, dancers forge a deeper connection with their environment and the people who inhabit it. Students will examine partnering fundamentals, including weightsharing and counterbalance. They will learn classic Pilobolus movements, and adopt Pilobolus’s core creative tools – improvisation and collaborative choreography – to create their own movement.
