The Performance and Workshop Series is a collaborative effort between Maryland Art Place (MAP) and a selection of Baltimore’s most exciting performance collectives. Baltimore’s art scene is vibrant with challenging work in performance art. To provide a platform for such explorations, MAP has initiated the Performance and Workshop Series. Pairing access to innovative performances with hands-on workshops, the series aims to give participants an intimate look at the spotlight group’s creative process and allow a unique perspective on the art form.
Kicking off the series are performances by Flux/us Dance Projects, which will take place at 7pm on Friday, January 13 and Saturday, January 14. Flux/us will present The Key is Only One, a piece that explores themes of duality and contrast through choreographed and improvisational modern dance. As choreographer Judy Kurjan describes it, “The Key is Only One explores relationships between mind and body, self and other, dominance and subordinance, inner world and outer world.” Kurjan’s dancers for this performance are drawn from the regional dance community.
A reception will follow Saturday’s performance and feature Baltimore-based electronic music act Tek SubPort. Kurjan will also lead a free modern dance workshop on Saturday, January 14 from 2-4pm. Space is limited; RSVPs are encouraged. To reserve a space, contact Program Manager Sofia Rutka at firstname.lastname@example.org.
