Working with five young Moroccan dancers, the goal of the project was to inspire creativity by learning how to produce unique contemporary choreography and work as a team to create a full-length dance performance. Rehearsals were led using a base of contemporary technique, improvisation exercises, group experimentation and personal creativity. The final performance was a combination of separate solos, duets and group work choreographed in part by the dancers, tied together by a common theme: freedom of expression.
