Moving Seasons was created as part of the Small Bites program through Wolf Trap’s Early Learning through the Arts. The piece is a 10 minute solo that combines music, poetry and dance while exploring images of the four seasons. I wrote a poem that vividly depicts my memories of experiencing the seasons as a young child. The work uses descriptive vocabulary which comes to life through the accompanying movement.
This piece can be offered as a stand alone performance or as a single or three day workshop with development activities leading into and reflecting on the performance. I believe that there is much for little ones to learn from engaging in artistic experiences. The workshop will help them prepare for and unpack the abstract nature of artistic experience. Additionally it will give them a chance to engage with the subject matter explored in the work; the seasons and descriptive vocabulary through kinesthetic learning. In the three day residency students will create a “dance” which could be performed for parents at a celebration or end of the year assembly.
