Leslie Seiters and Ron Estes

This rich and multifaceted residency by Leslie Seiters and Ron Estes included the sculpture, theater and dance departments. Ron and Leslie are outstanding actors, visual artists, writers, choreographers, improvisers, dancers and teachers. While at AU, they taught contact improvisation to the community, physical theater to the acting students and dance/improvisation to the dance students. They also taught a workshop to sculpture students about the characteristics of stationary objects and movement as artistic media, exemplifying how one medium can inform and inspire the other. The week ended with a stunning performance that included text, video, dance, contact improvisation, sculpture, props, music and even an aerial dance that Sean O’Skea and the AU theater tech crew helped to create.
