Colleen Oster and Joshua Lorris are local emerging artists in the dance and performing arts and invite you to join, "Yes, And, Or!"

Colleen and Joshua bring a frame to ‘the group improvisational form‘ as performance. Improvisation is sometimes described as a game of yes, & and, a concept of encouragement and reinforcement of an action on stage. However, this exploration introduces the concept of "or", encouraging through countering. Focusing group dynamics towards identifying and engaging with what’s happening in the very moment. Along with the awareness of the audience’ and the performer's eye, "Yes, And, Or" invites a look at how the choices configure a potency, or dilution, of everyone experience. 

This ensemble is formed by anyone (with a variety of movement skill and experience) that wants to participate. There is a rehearsal on 19th from 6:30-9pm. Rehearsal attendance is encouraged for the showing.

This culminates in a performance showing Thursday, March 21st at 7:30pm with a discussion to follow. The event is free to the public although donations are accepted at the door, support the the costs associated to run this project.

Presented by Ground Breaker Movement Labs.
