MARLBORO – Amie Dowling, dance professor in the Performing Arts and Social Justice Program at the University of San Francisco, will present a workshop at Marlboro College on Wednesday, March 6, at 7 pm. Dowling’s presentation, titled “Performance and Prisons: Creative Collaborations,” will take place in Marlboro’s Serkin Center Dance Studio, and is free and open to the public.

Dowling introduces artistic processes, techniques, and structures used when developing collaborative performance work with men and women who are, or have been, incarcerated.

Prior to moving west, Dowling was a guest artist in the Five Colleges dance department and taught at Amherst and Mount Holyoke colleges, as well as serving as a graduate advisor at Smith College. Dowling founded the Dance Generators, a performance company whose members’ ages span six decades. She became an artist-in-residence at the Hampshire and Hampden county jails, where she collaborated with people who are incarcerated on the creation of original theater/dance pieces. Dowling is a recipient of a choreography fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
