Lisa Wymore & Amara Tabor-Smith: Sabar in the Studio

• Lisa Wymore, Amara Tabor-Smith (UC Berkeley): $5,000.00 for Sabar in the Studio

“Sabar in the Studio: Investigating concepts of charisma, spontaneity and community” through a three-week residency with renowned Senegalese dance artist Cire Ceye and drummer Khadim Niang from Company Jant-Bi.  The proposed residency will directly reach approximately 75 students enrolled in modern Dance Technique class in the department, as well as other departments and broader Bay Area community through a series of performances.  The collaboration will directly inspire the creation of Tabor-Smith’s choreographic work for the Berkeley Dance Project to be performed entirely by students in April 2011.
