On Wednesday, September 7th there will be a free screening of Enter the Faun at theÂ Wisconsin Institute for Discovery located on the UW-Madison campus at 330 N. Orchard Street. Â TheÂ movie will begin at 4:30pm, Â body movement workshop directly following the movie.
Free screening of a documentary film about the effects of a collaboration between a choreographer (Tamar Rogoff) and an actor (Gregg Mozgala) with Cerebral Palsy.
Watch the trailer.
Tamar chose to cast Gregg in a production because she was fascinated by how his body moved and wanted to work with his movements. He was intrigued by the idea of being cast as a dancer because his gait is not typical and people with disabilities are rarely cast as the leading man or as a dancer. Over many months of work together, Tamar used techniques with Gregg that she uses with all of her dancers to help them unlock their bodies’ potential.
This film documents the profound impact of this collaboration on Gregg’s body and on Tamar and Gregg both personally and professionally. The screening will be followed by a question and answer period and a body movement workshop with Tamar and Gregg that all attendees are welcome to attend.
The event is sponsored by International Zen Dojo of Wisconsin, with support from UW Leadership in Adapted Fitness.
