A Mid-Winter Break’s Dream

(cancelled)

An environmental theater and installation art camp

Brought to you by KoKo NYC in partnership with Spoke the Hub

Ages 7-13

February 19-23, 9am-3 pm

$550/week

Extended Day Program from 3-5:30 pm: $125/week.
Scholarships available for qualifying families.

Kids will be busy taking over the entire floor of our building in Gowanus and transforming it into a multi-room, interactive set in the spirit of the environmental theatre sensation Sleep No More.  Under the guidance of top teaching artists from KoKo NYC and Spoke the Hub, kids will choose the area they want to focus on as our group builds sets, props and costumes, designs lights and develops the plot and characters. As in our well-loved Soap Box camp, and all KoKo workshops, kids will be in charge of the design and building using tools and recycled materials and everyone will participate in the final show!  Click here to view a sample daily schedule.

ABOUT OUR TEACHING ARTISTS:

MINDY TORO grew up in Brooklyn, working, choreographing, and dancing at Spoke The Hub, which greatly influenced her love of quirky and athletic performance art and dance. In 2015, she graduated with a BA in dance from Connecticut College, where she had the pleasure of performing the works of David Dorfman, Lisa Race, Faye Driscoll, Wendell Cooper, Ori Flomin, Heidi Henderson, among others. Mindy has shown her choreography at the Socrates Sculpture Park, LAVA, La Mama, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Danspace at St. Mark’s Church, and at various street festivals, parks, and gardens around the city. She most recently co-produced, with Mauri Connors, Park Piece; a two hour site-specific series of works throughout Prospect Park. She is also getting back into capoeira, which she is very excited about!
