Pioneer Winter is a Miami-based choreographer, and director of the Pioneer Winter Collective – invested in physical theatre, contemporary dance, interdisciplinary collaboration, and transmedia. His Collective provides a platform for risk-taking, progressive, and experimental projects by democratizing performance through unexpected bodies, unexpected places, and unexpected social change.
Pioneer will be performing a series of vignettes from multiple works woven together into an intimate and provocative evening of dance. Vignettes will include include “PIE SOLO,” a reinterpretation of the ‘one-man show’, where Pioneer Winter examines faith in religion and culture from the vantage points of sexuality, age, and queerness. Video installation, tap dancing, and stripping will draw the audience into an intimate and interactive dialogue blending humor, isolation, and anecdote.
“Dance-making is the one way I have to be brave. My work democratizes performance through the unexpected. Through this, I champion unexpected bodies, telling unexpected stories and personal histories, in unexpected and hidden places. I am a believer in the beauty of vulnerability and humanness.” -Pioneer Winter
Pioneer will be presenting a workshop that is open to all on Saturday afternoon, May 13th. Please check the HMF website regularly for updates on Festival arts workshops.
