dance omi in the fields

Dance Omi International Dance Collective is a three week residency directed by Christopher K. Morgan, bringing together an international group of dancers and choreographers to explore and collaborate through dance. This artistic process is the goal of the residency: to have the time and space to create without the pressure of a finished performance.

This year’s diverse group of choreographers and dance artists bring together their varied backgrounds including modern dance, release technique, west african dance, somatic practices, holistic healing and the intersection between dance and sculpture.

Christopher K. Morgan describes the experience: ”The two most unique aspects of Dance Omi are that it brings together a truly diverse group of international dancer/choreographers and that the invited residents have the opportunity to work site specifically on Omi’s unique property.”

“Residents are invited to dance anywhere; our extensive outdoor sculpture park The Fields, the Omi barn, empty grain silos, open fields and gravel roads. It’s a fertile playground where the environment and imagination can ignite choreographic exploration.”
