About the class:  In this class, choreographer Brian Crabtree will construct a new work for the students titled WHAT I SAY GOES. The dance will explore modes of communication through the use of gestures. What is familiar and what seems vague? How can a conversation with the body be direct, and what happens when it goes off the rails? The students will be asked to create two series of gestures that will form the base of the dance. There will be opportunities and expectations for them to show, teach, and provide feedback on the material and the construction of the piece as it moves along. The class will build their confidence in their personal movement expression, allow them to make decisions about how phrases are performed, and hopefully, leave them feeling as though they could make a dance of their own. Music will be chosen dependent upon the mood set by the first two or three sessions.

About Brian:  He has been dancing and making dances for over thirty years in Boston, New York City, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and his beloved hometown of Portland, Maine. For eight years he was a dancer in Ram Island repertory Dance under the direction of Daniel McCusker. There he performed in the works of several choreographers including Lucinda Childs, Doug Varone, Maida Withers, Yvonne Rainer, and Mr. McCusker. He formed an independent group to show his own early dances called Random Moves Dance Collective. He moved to Boston in 1994, and produced several projects of his own and in collaboration with Marjorie Morgan, Caitlin Corbett, Jody Weber, and Audra Carabetta.
His dances have received support and recognition from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Cambridge Arts Council, Dance Umbrella, Somerville Arts Council, and This That Productions.
He has shown work at Dance Complex and Green St. Studios and has twice been a resident artist at Boston Center for the Arts. His dances have been favorably reviewed in the Boston Globe, Boston Herald, and Boston Phoenix. He returned home to Portland in April of last year.
