Transcultrual Fusion Group Improv Format
In this format dancers work together as a group. Utilizing formatted steps, cues, eye-contact and the familiarity of musical phrasing allows dancers to stitch together a different interpretation each time they dance.
Based on the rich vocabulary of steps, their variations, staging and guidelines created by FCBD. Heidi's personal format is ever evolving as she reconciles with the colonialism inherent in the dance form and tries to move forward while honoring the format she grew to love. Taking inspiration from her favorite dancers, educating herself in the different cultural dance traditions appropriated by FCBDS plus adding Amy Sigil's staging, Improv Team Sync.
She's creating her own format that is ever in flux and hopes to respectfully honor the cultures that inspired the dance in the first place.
