2016 RETREAT a SARUS - CUCALORUS - DANCE COOPERATIVE Collaboration
Cucalorus made a conscious effort this year to schedule its Summer Dance Intensive to coincide with SARUS festival, and to include the Dance Cooperative in planning the Intensive to integrate it more fully with our Dance-a-lorus program. We hope this move will be beneficial to the local arts community in two ways. First, the Intensive will provide workshop, networking, and social opportunities for local choreographers and filmmakers in addition to visiting guest artists. And second, it will form a creative community to feed into the SARUS festival, which showcases important experimental performance work every summer in Wilmington.
The retreat offers artists an opportunity to experiment with movement/dance (or other expressions) and film. The first week focuses on creating and feedback. The second week focuses on participating and seeing SARUS Festival events. We will be enjoying the deep artistic processes and the unique opportunity to exchange with SARUS as well as Cucalorus guest artist from out of town.
