April Sellers Dance Collective's Creative Practice

Event Type
Event Description

ASDC uses dance to celebrate ignored streams in society. In this workshop the company will share their creative practice including, methods for devising work collectively, structuring improvisation in performance, queering the body and layering modern-dance technique within everyday gestures and text-based narratives.

Formed by April Sellers in 2000, the April Sellers Dance Collective (ASDC) is nationally recognized for their gender-bending, feminist-infused performances. Led by Sellers' choreography and fueled by community participation, the ASDC’s work has long explored sexual identity (Jousting, 2014 and In Her Place, 2000), queer feminism (Big Baby, 2014 and Double Drag, 2015), and the vulnerability of the body (The V Project, 2007). ASDC celebrates complex expressions of gender and identity in their highly-crafted performances.

Workshop will take place at Volta Performing Arts
