MARTA MARTA Ligeti -Saltspring Island Residency
MARTA MARTA SUMMER RESIDENCY
August 16-23, 2014 • ArtSpring Theatre, Saltspring Island, BC
For one week, MARTA MARTA and the MICROCOSMOS QUARTET will be at ArtSpring Theatre on beautiful Salt Spring Island to develop two works for musicians and dancers based on the music of the great 20th century avant-garde Hungarian composer György Ligeti. There are multiple opportunities to experience our work during this time through a community dance workshop, open rehearsals, and performances. Come and enjoy this amazing opportunity to witness the company in their creative process!
COMMUNITY DANCE WORKSHOP with MARTHA CARTER
Wednesday, Aug 20th, 7pm @ ArtSpring Theatre
Martha Carter combines her experiences as a choreographer, yoga teacher and scoliosis specialist to share gentle spine-based yoga and dance sequences that bring awareness, alignment, length and strength to the whole body. Using music for rhythm and flow, the class starts on the floor and moves into space to finish with dynamic freestyle dancing. No dance or yoga experience required.
