In May, the one and only Graham Brown will teach Takoma Park Moves! Graham last taught in our FRIDAY CLASS series in December, and we’re really looking forward to having him back to teach for the month. Class runs on Thursdays from 6:30-8pm, except on the first Thursday of the month, when he’ll teach a free sampler class from 6:30-7pm, immediately before our last HOME event of the season. Graham teaches May 2, 9, 16 and 30. (No class on May 23).
Class description: I aim to engender awareness, empowerment, individuality, honesty, risk taking, and technical prowess. I am interested in the use of the voice, improvisation, rhythmic specificity and powering through the space with momentum and ease.
Graham Brown (BFA, University of Utah; MFA candidate, University of Maryland, College Park) will premier his new evening-length dance theatre work Apple Falling in March 2013 at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, which builds on his recent works You, evening length; The Better Half, mixed-ability work commissioned by the Dance Exchange; and as far as I know, solo/monologue presented at Queen’s College and the Choreographers showcase. Graham currently performs with PEARSONWIDRIG DANCETHEATER and has freelanced with such choreographers as Nicholas Leichter Dance (NYC), Tzveta Kassabova (MD), Cie. Wili Dorner (Vienna, Austria), and others. Graham spent the 2000’s in Salt Lake City, UT where he was the founder and co-director of Movement Forum (MoFo), a dance improvisation performance company. He has taught domestically and internationally at universities and dance festivals in both faculty and guest capacities. Graham is sustained by his three children, Isobella Oliver, and Elliette, and dear wife, Lehua. More info at grahambrown.org
