Margi Cole of Dance COLEective on campus this week

February 20, 2011


Margi Cole of Dance COLEctive will be teaching classes, offering workshops, giving a lecture, and performing her most recent piece. 

As the Jane Quisenberry Wirtz’35  Endowed Artist, deleteMargi Cole will be offering a student workshop tomorrow (Tuesday) from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Bunge Studio of the Neese Theatre Complex. There are 20 slots available for students to participate; to reserve your spot, sign up outside the theatre’s administrative office. 

Margi describes her workshop as touching on “ideas around narrative, investigating gender-specific movement vocabulary and examining physical relationships both literally and in space. How do all of these ideas lend themselves to the creation of a dance? This exploration provides some insight into the work 'Written on the Body,' a forum to challenge society’s current perceptions of gender and stereotypes by addressing public and critical literary expectations of female writers in 19th-century England.” Participants should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and be prepared to move.

For students, staff, and faculty interested in hearing about Margi's creative process, her lecture, “Written on the Body: The Moving Pseudonyms of the Brontë Sisters,” will take place Wednesday night (Feb. 23) at 7 p.m. in the WAC South Lounge.
