The Waiting Room



The School for Contemporary Dance and Thought (33 Hawley Street, Northampton, MA 01060, Northampton MA)

**Please join us for a free performance of a new dance by Vanessa Anspaugh and dancers.**

*The Coaching Project on Tour* works with selected students in an intensive workshop format. In collaboration with the dancers, choreographer Vanessa Anspaugh quickly creates a new piece from scratch. Part of the structure of the workshop is to take it on a "small tour" at the end. In a DIY low stakes "Punk band" kinda situation we tour garages, back alleys, art galleries etc to audiences both planned and incidental.

The piece we are making, entitled *The Waiting Room*, functions as a kind of geographical map of our time and research together. Moving from death through the bardo of disorientation, we returned to a ritual compass of both what our bodies hold and the wildness our bodies need.
