Dear Interested P.O.R.C.H. Participants,

The primary questions seems to be: 

“Should I just take all those cool ponderosa workshops or should I do P.O.R.C.H.?”

“Well, I have to answer your question with questions.…”

- Intimacy, maturity & real joy about art making within the field of dance  ? 

- Stay longer & receive benefits of a special place?

- Commitment to a group process and artistic exchange?

- Help create the summer atmosphere for our place - which needs care and intensive exploration?

- Receive spontaneous gifts and our generous stage?

- Be part of P.O.R.C.H. extended network?

- International, creative venues to show your work and to share the resources ? 

- Sustainable sharing of resources for the larger dance community?

- Expansions, Pouring resources with others for project ideas and future possibilities? 

P.O.R.C.H provides these things! We would love to have you!

Fields Unfolding



APRIL 30 - MAY 3, 2015

sharing touch:  awaking sensation ; establishing relationship;  the loops of giving & taking/sending & receiving.

"Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being." ( Genesis, 2:7).

The Cutting Edge & transformation

Ponderosa Ongoing Research Collaborations Happenings

A three month intensive project inspired by the many years of international collaborations and the networking of ponderosa artists. The program is guided by a professional team of curators and faculty successfully active in the creative and performance fields from various countries. During  three individual month-long modules, P.O.R.C.H. presents a diverse training ground for a new or continuing perspective in performance and improvisational life practice.

We highly suggest committing to all three modules for an expansive range of body based techniques and compositional forms to enliven your work as a performer, improviser or teacher. If that's interesting for you, register for all three Modules by March 31, and get a 10% discount on workshop fees as well as for food & housing, of all modules.

P.O.R.C.H. & Con|VERGE Opprtunity

Ponderosa Ongoin Research Collaboration Happenings & Con|VERGE Interdisciplinary performance residency

This year, the chorographic module of P.O.R.C.H. will be primarily focusing on ones own solo process.  A collaborative choreographic team will lead two hours of group practice per day and then individual non-structured working time. Individuals will have enough studio time to create their own work, with access to constructive feedback, artistic exchange & research.

We are offering a new opportunity to stay on after the P.O.R.C.H. module to work collaboratively with Con|VERGE facilitated by Mary Pearson and Miriam Wolodarski. We highly recommend this progression as a great addition to your solo process.

For the arrival of the Con|VERGE guests, we will present our solo works and introduce ourselves. We encourage you to stay on at ponderosa, making the best of collaboration by contributing to our growing network of international artistic exchange. Please apply separately for each program. We will provide a discount for those choosing to attend both programs.
