Old and New Dancing with Rebecca Pappas
Rebecca’s technique class travels between classic and contemporary modes of understanding the body, approaching “dance class” as both research and training. Movement material is informed by somatic forms, and classical modern dance practices, demanding that we dwell in opposition: forward/backward, muscular/skeletal, core/distal, standing/prone, held/released.
Rebecca Pappas makes dance that addresses the body as an archive for personal and social memory. Her choreography has toured nationally and internationally, and has received residencies from Yaddo and Djerassi, and support from organizations such as the Mellon Foundation, the Zellerbach Family Foundation, and CHIME. In Summer 2017 she will present Parade2017, a collaboration with No Exit Theater, at Garfield Park. She currently creates work in Los Angeles, and Indianapolis, and is an Assistant Professor of Dance at Ball State University.www.pappasanddancers.com
