DANCE 16AX: ReVIVAL: A Site-Specific, Multi media Dance Theater Production

ReVIVAL: November 14-16, 2019 at Roble Studio Theater. Stanford Artist in Residence Amara Tabor-Smith leads the creation of a site-specific, multi media, dance theater work titled, ReVIVAL. ReVIVAL is a survival research performance work that is launched from the history of the student activism that took place on the Stanford Campus in the late 1960s, and has a particular focus on the student actions that led to the founding of the Committee on Black Performing Arts (CBPA). During the three week intensive, students will engage in a researched creative process which includes daily movement classes rooted in Afro-contemporary dance and improvisation techniques, theater training practices, and mining the Stanford archives: this will be the foundation for the creation of text and choreography. The question that each student will begin the process with is What parts of history do you/we choose to recall, remember, recreate and re-invent in order to carry us forward repaired, restored and revived? Students enrolled in this Arts Intensive course are expected to continue into the fall quarter culminating in the premiere of ReVIVAL the weekend of November 14-16.
