EXPLODING JOINTS

November 10 - December 15, 2020
Tuesdays 6-8pm (CST) via zoom
$40


Deadline: November 1, 2020



EXPLODING JOINTS is a 6 part movement research class that explores the explosive qualities of plasticity in dance and body-based practices. Structured as a kind of “trash theory”, EXPLODING JOINTS will be experimentally opportunistic and will splice together different modes of learning and spheres of practice.




EXPLODING JOINTS will consist of 4 main modules: Acid, Bitter, Alkaline, Sweet. Each session will begin with a warm-up led by dancer and herbalist Caroline Caswell. After loosening we’ll have a discussion centered around one of 4 readings*. The last half of the class will be spent on movement research. EXPLODING JOINTS will conclude with an opportunity to present and discuss a personal artwork, performance, or project.




The cost to participate in the 6-week session is $40. Upon signing up, participants will receive a package containing the course materials: a reader, a workbook, and an EXPLODING JOINTS herbal tincture formulated by Austin-based Apothecary Earth Commons.
