Prime Action 4 week Workshop (Technique & Repertory)
Prime Action is a contemporary movement/dance training which employs African diasporic and modern dance movement principles for a rigorous practice of attention to detail and intention of action (Prime Action). The four-part class structure offers each participant the opportunity to work towards the development of their mental, physical and spiritual strength and expressivity.
REPERTORY: Learn phrase material from kisi work. This duet was inspired by the mother and child Kongo figure(s) which symbolizes the essential role that women play in sustaining and extending their kin group. kisi work is a ritual action in which “mother-woman” prepares her “child-boy” for his life ahead and her transition.
