Training is an essential element of The Hinterlands’ creative process. The company views its training practice as a platform for creating work and a provocation towards the unknown. Ongoing physical and vocal training dilates the presence, energy, and awareness of the performer and builds the expressive capacities of the ensemble. Content for performance is developed through continuous investigation of improvisation and form.
The Hinterlands regularly shares their training practice through residencies, workshops, apprenticeships, and monthly participatory Open Training sessions. The next Open Training session will be held on Sunday, January 27, 2013 from 2PM-5PM at Contemporary Art Institute Detroit’s Detroit Contemporary building (5141 Rosa Parks, Detroit).(Photo by Amanda Reintjes)
