A weekend of development, feedback, mentoring and a production of the work at the end of it all 
Work within your own creative process. Break blocks. Move work forward. Build creative stamina. Hit the wall and find out what is at the other side. 
Come with material to test, twist, develop, cut, reflect, refashion, reason, rescue and refine. Share feedback and take it immediately back into the studio. Wrestle with angels. Play with demons. End with a work unlike anything else you’ve created or performed before. 
Across Oceans Maxine Heppner will mentor 4 groups of choreographers and their dancers over 26.2 hours of creative flow, discovery, creation and performance. Jessica Runge and Takako Segawa will assist as coaches.
