KAIROS is one of two companies awarded a 2018-19 I-ARE Residency at The Dance Complex!
The Integrated Artists’ Residency Exchange (I-ARE), a program inaugurated Fall, 2013, is designed to help artists commit to evolution. This season’s I-ARE Residency Artists, DeAnna Pellecchia and Karen Krolak, will spend several months exploring their work in new ways: changing patterns, taking risks, and sharing these learning moments with The Dance Complex and the dance community through informal showings, movement workshops and performances.
Check out the full schedule below! We hope to see you at an event soon – if you have any questions please contact us!
KAIROS is honored to have the support and sponsorship of The Dance Complex for our 2018-19 season. A huge thank you to Peter DiMuro, Rachel Roccoberton and everyone over at the DC who made this possible!

Led by Artistic Director DeAnna Pellecchia and members of the company, this contemporary class introduces dancers to the somatic world of KAIROS.
The first half of the class focuses on building strength, flexibility, and coordination with an emphasis on understanding proper alignment, re-patterning learned movement behavior and cultivating deeper body awareness. Exercises and warm-ups incorporating Capoeira, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Initiation work, partnering and more invite students to find a fuller use of space, nuance and strength. The second half focuses on learning new vocabulary and phrases that focus on spatial awareness, musicality, and performance qualities. Improvisational strategies are an integral component to KAIROS’ creative process and will also be interspersed throughout class. An introduction to movement practices including 1,000 Voices, Action Theater, and Listening Strategies aim to expand the potential of a dancer’s performative power. Students will also learn phrase work from current repertory that blend free-wheeling turns and leaps with sudden inversions, extreme suspended shapes, rhythmic isolations, quirky gestures, and intricate footwork.

THIS EVENT SPONSORED BY BOSTON MOVING ARTS PRODUCTIONS
‘Who I am is for me to define, no one else.’
We all experience stereotypes. Each and every one of us is in conflict with a story that has been told for us and about us. How do we defy those stories? Is there any part of these stories we might come to love? How do we find the courage to be authentically ourselves? And how do we fully support others in doing the same?
When we are denied the opportunity to define our stories, to define our perspectives, that denial comes to define us. When we own our story, we have the power to create our very own brave ending. When we truly listen to each other’s story we create a path through tolerance and acceptance to inclusion and love.
Through the process of writing, moving and listening we will transform language and physicality into a powerful story-telling experience. By generating stream-of-consciousness word lists and improvising through guided structures and the practice of Listening Strategies®, we will create a space where we can hear, see, feel and experience each other’s brave stories.
This FREE movement workshop, sponsored by Boston Moving Arts Productions, is structured to welcome movers of all levels and abilities. The only requirement is a desire to move and be moved. All sizes, all colors, all cultures, all sexes, all beliefs, all religions, all ages, all types, and all people are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Please register on-line to reserve your spot!!!!

KAIROS will present a very special ‘teaser’ performance of MINISTRY of ♀ (leading up to the Fall 2019 premiere) that takes audience members behind-the-scenes of our creative process. Prelude to MINISTRY of ♀ will feature the final draft of our newest evening-length performance, including a sneak peek into recently integrated design elements: film by Lindsay Lapointe, visual art installation by Corinne Chase and costume prototypes by Carlos Villamil. The evening will culminate in a post-performance conversation with KAIROS dancers and collaborators about crafting multi-disciplinary performances and utilizing art as a tool for social change.
