Reflections of our World with Lida Winfield
In the pandemic, artists all over the world are working from their living rooms. Oftentimes, artists are a mirror of society or circumstances. In this workshop, we will work with the feelings and situations you are in and use our art to reflect the current events of the world. We will build dances with your location, be it a bedroom, shower, steps, or kitchen. We will build skills to keep a solo practice alive and bright throughout the pandemic. This workshop welcomes all movers, all bodies in all environments.
Lida Winfield is an innovative and accomplished dancer, choreographer, spoken word artist, and educator, who has created original work merging storytelling, dance, and visual art. Lida’s artistic practice is inextricably linked to her role as an educator and her pedagogy is rooted in inclusion, access, and the recognition that our brains and bodies work differently and this difference is a valuable asset. Lida is dedicated to using the performing arts to move herself and others forward intellectually, developmentally, socially, and spiritually and views her continued growth and innovation as an educator to be one of her current and most important goals. In 2017, she received a National Performance Network Creation grant for her new work IMAGINARY with commissioning partners The Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, Middlebury Performing Arts Series, The Yard, and Jacob’s Pillow. Lida is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Dance Program at Middlebury College. Photo by Jonathan Hsu.
