FORM/S is a bi-annual creative workshop in Seattle, WA produced by zoe | juniper that brings together Pacific Northwest, national, and international artists to teach working professionals and pre-professionals in the visual and performing arts. FORM/S aims to expand an artist’s capabilities by both deepening an understanding of their primary form and exploring mediums outside of their fields of work. By curating a faculty and educational experience that challenges ideas, FORM/S stimulates the mind, broadens perspectives, and creates connections.

Technique as a Vehicle for Transmission:
(drop ins available)
10:00am - 12:00pm
Zoe’s classes utilize a somatic approach to technique as she is interested in examining formal training as a platform that she and her students can dismantle and reconsider how it should be approached. Her classes are physically rigorous, deep, and kinesthetically challenging; this is a space where product orientated results takes rest and active experience reigns. Musicality and physical metaphors in both improvisation and structured forms are used as a vehicle to surprise and further each dancer’s potential fostering a body that is available, aware, and in command of its senses, intuition, and physicality.
(available to full workshop participants)
12:30pm - 2:30pm
Using Zoe’s movement and other visual art forms (ie. drawing, lighting, video, and sound design) the dancers will be lead through structured improvisation to experiment with shaping the material, choreography, making choices in response to the space, elements and each other. This class will meld together the information from the explored forms in a performance at BASE that is free and open to the public.
