SIDRA BELL WORKSHOP
Contemporary Systems- an interior & material approach to movement
In Contemporary Systems Bell encourages provocative thought and an immersive approach to the subject matter of the body. Her work demands a high degree of physicality and input from the dancers, encouraging them to execute movement with intention, curiosity, and empathy.
“Bell’s dance-theater works are intensely physical, concentrated and mysterious- yet they reveal the inner aspects of the performers with startling clarity”- The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
