A Harvest will be celebrated from 9:45-10:00, but snacks will be shared outside the studio this time. All participants are strongly encouraged to stay for the entire Underscore.
The Underscore is a dance improvisation structure developed by Nancy Stark Smith in 1990 and practiced worldwide today. By mapping a spectrum of states, from quiet, internal activity to high-energy, interactive dancing, the score becomes a vehicle for incorporating contact improvisation into a broader arena of improvisational dance practice; for developing ease dancing in spherical space- alone and with others; and for integrating kinesthetic and compositional concerns while improvising. Each Underscore is unique, comprising an endless landscape of individual and collective human experiences. The process continues to evolve through a growing community and conversation among practitioners.
