Family Day @ The Watermill Center
Our fall Family Day invites children (ages 8 and up) and their families to engage with Artists-in-Residence, Colombian choreographer Alvaro Restrepo and dance company El Colegio del Cuerpo. The group will perform their latest work-in-progress ANIMAL FAMILY with music by English/German composer Max Richter, based on Antonio Vivaldi’s 4 Seasons. The piece incorporates Mexican animal masks, costumes by Colombian designer Olga Piedrahita and paintings by Leopoldo Combariza. Following the performance they will lead families in a mask-movement workshop. Space is limited, reservations are required.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
El Colegio del Cuerpo (eCdC) was founded in 1997, in Cartagena de Indias by dancers, choreographers and pedagogues Álvaro Restrepo (Colombia) and Marie France Delieuvin (France). The space was created for children and the general public to find the opportunity to approach the expressive and artistic dimension of the human body, through contemporary dance.
eCdC is a cultural and an educative space – plural and democratic – that offers the opportunity of a new ethics of the human body, indissolubly connected to an aesthetic and artistic search; simultaneously associated with contemporary cultural, social, political and economic issues. eCdC achieves its mission through four working areas: Formation, Creation, Sensitivity and Diffusion, Investigation and Documentation.
