Susan Hess Modern Dance (SHMD) welcomes back one of its distinguished alumni and invites you to “Improvisational Movement: A Class with Lionel Popkin”!
Movement, movement, movement. Or not. You decide from what you need on
the day, the hour, the minute, the second. Guided imagery will lead participants
into improvisational dancing, growing out of touch, proximity, and
interrelated spatial awareness.

Returning to Philadelphia with a performance of Ruth Doesn’t Live Here
Anymore, inspired by the career of Ruth St. Denis, choreographer and
certified instructor in Skinner Release Technique Lionel Popkin
invites you into the immediacy of contact – and non-contact –

“Improvisational Movement: A Class with Lionel Popkin” is offered by
Susan Hess Modern Dance, with gratitude to the Painted Bride Art
Center. The tour of Lionel Popkin’s Ruth Doesn’t Live Here Anymore is
made possible by a grant from Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with
support from the National Endowment for the Arts and made possible in
part by support from the National Performance Network (NPN)
Performance Residency Program. For more information:
