In a guest workshop with dancers from the Chamber Dance Company at the UW Seattle the participants learnt and interpreted excperpts from the 2012 repertory, including Jean Erdman's Creature on a Journey and Helen Tamiris' Negro Spirituals.. Under the direction of Hannah Wiley the company presents each year a concert with restaged and recreated works from the 20th Century. We examine different takes on the concept of restaging existing dances and explore how the identity of the dancer intersects with the identity of the work.
