Ensemble Thinking practice series

Foolish Operations is hosting an Ensemble Thinking practice series taught by Julie Lebel  – our Artistic Director, and member of the Lower Left Collective. This practice is open to all (dancers, theatre, visual artists, and musicians – instruments welcomed and can engage in the moving practice). This is an adult-only practice, 18yrs +.

Ensemble Thinking is a system of collaborative group performance practices. These composition exercises refine the individual’s ability to perceive, initiate, and support collective action. More about Ensemble Thinking here.
