by Headlong Dance Theater
Avalanche (2012) was one part of a series of five creative residencies conducted in Philadelphia and in Maine in 2012. Members of Headlong Dance Theater led the residencies, which were initiated by faculty members in Theater and Dance at Bates and Colby Colleges. Our working terrain was the possible interconnectedness of fields of Theater and Dance and the potential synchronicity between the practices of these two forms. In addition to this piece, our output included numerous conversations, some private and several public, in which issues pertaining to this project were uncovered. Headlong members conducted public workshops with students at both colleges and guest taught classes.
