Announcing two summer retreats/workshops:

Hello all,
I am happy to announce Summerwork@The Farm 4, August 4-August 9th, 2008.  
Please see attached for description and info. Also see our new website designed 
by Andy Dayton at:

Summerwork@The Farm is a fluid, process oriented retreat/workspace that is open 
to anyone wishing to participate in a focused, reflective and supportive 
creative environment in rural Wisconsin.  It is a non-genre specific working 
environment in which there are no hard and fast boundaries, rather, porous 
membranes of artistic practice that welcome overlap and stresses mentoring and 
collaboration. It is about creating a friendly, supportive community in which 
participants have the opportunity to interact with other artists, try out new 
ideas, share their work and ideas with others and cook and eat long artful 
meals together from an organic garden.  Essentially, it is a retreat that 
offers creative time without expectations, within an intentional community of 
(usually) 10-12 artists of all disciplines who come from around the states and 
internationally as well. Each day begins with a yoga class and the day 
progresses very organically from there, with mentoring sessions, movemen
t, sessions, work time, etc. We stress art as practice and life as practice.

Please see our website for more info.  Feel free to contact Douglas Rosenberg 

Screendance@The Farm
August 11-16, 2008

Douglas Rosenberg, Li Chiao-Ping and guest artist, Dianne Reid, Australian 
video dance maker, teacher and theorist.

Screendance @The Farm is a week-long workshop and retreat in rural Wisconsin 
focusing on both practice and theory.  It is intended for professional and/or 
advanced practitioners in the field. This is a unique opportunity to combine 
research and practice along with discussions about the theory of screendance as 
an art form in a working studio set on 5 acres in the beautiful countryside 
outside of Madison, Wisconsin.  Participants will be mentored in all areas of 
practice including choreography for the camera, production, applied writing and 
the practicalities of distribution and exhibition.  This is a wholistic 
approach to the form that includes shared collaborative meals from The Farm’s 
organic garden and a creative community approach to art-making in general. Each 
day will begin with a movement session and end with a community dinner.

The facilities at The Farm include a large dance studio, art studio with 
woodshop and video editing work-space.  It is set in a landscape of rolling 
hills and farmland with lakes and forests nearby.  

The cost for the workshop is $300 per person and includes communal meals.  We 
can only accept a maximum of ten participants.  Lodging is your choice:  you 
may camp on the property or sleep in the studio where there is plenty of space 
and a bathroom and shower.  You are also welcome to stay in town in a nearby 
hotel if you should choose to do so.

Please email Douglas Rosenberg at rosend@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx for more info.
