The Creative Process: A Workshop with Aria Evans
Tue Mar 26 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Calling all dance artists and choreographers interested in collaborative work!
For the March edition of YLDE’s workshop series, Aria Evans, dancer, choreographer, speaker, and founder / artistic director of The Go To Company, will offer tools she uses when choreographing, dancing, and creating work.
Working collaboratively, this workshop will investigate intuition, choice making, visual design, and narrative. We will source ideas of imagery, drawing upon actionable words to develop form and content.
This unique workshop will be a glimpse into the creative process Aria Evans uses to create her personal work; she will be sharing methods of engaging, creating, and collaborating. Aria will also tackle socially and politically driven subject matter from a unique point of view– artists interested in this matter will be able to connect to these themes.
Tuesday, March 26

300-393 Portage Avenue
Early bird price is $40 until March 15. Regular price is $60.
Tickets are available through the Eventbrite link here.
About Aria Evans:
Aria Evans is a Toronto-based mixed-race, emerging contemporary dance artist working within performance, choreography and video. In Evans’ work, through movement in performance and on film, she strives to express ideas that are inaccessible to the spoken or written word. Contemporary choreography is the technical foundation for Evans’ work while conceptually it draws from her experiences and the experiences of others. Evans is interested in how dance can tell the story of our lives and bring us together as a society. Her choreographic work draws attention to our unity by finding and dissecting the hints provided in our choices, our relationship to others and to ourselves.
By showcasing human stories, Evans’ intention is to provoke questions about society. Her work invites audiences to engage in personal contemplation and discussion. Evans strives to make the audiences entry into this challenge easier by drawing from and presenting everyday situations. When creating new work, the point of departure comes from contemporary life. The integrity of Evans’ artistic vision is to speak to a diverse audience and aspire to bring valuable and original contributions to the field of dance and dance film. More at http://www.ariaevans.ca
