Dance Education Laboratory (DEL) DEL’s Discovering The Green Table: A Paul Taylor Dance Company Collaboration
Time: 2-4PM EDT
Location: Online Synchronous
Megan Minturn, MA with guests from PTDC
Inspired by the iconic work, The Green Table, choreographed by Kurt Jooss in 1932, this workshop will focus on re-imagining this archetypal anti-war masterpiece through the DEL model of dance education.
DEL’s collaboration with Paul Taylor Dance Company, who will perform Jooss’s The Green Table at 92Y this spring, provides a unique opportunity for audiences to re-engage with this timeless and relevant work in a contemporary context.
The Discovering the Green Table workshop is designed as an interactive, virtual workshop and will actively engage participants in the key themes and characters of Jooss’ The Green Table, through movement exploration, dance analysis, group discussion, and collaborative dance-making inspired by themes of peace and war.
*Workshop participants receive a complimentary live-streamed ticket, to see Paul Taylor Dance Company’s performance of The Green Table at 92Y on Wednesday, April 6. Viewing access is from April 6-9.
