SHAKE/WALK
Taking two everyday forms of movement, we will allow these forms to disorganize within, and to be disorganizing of, our bodies. This process will lead us into understandings of function and form and also into expressive potentials that arise within experimental states of disorder. As we explore in solo, duet, and ensemble improvisations, moving periodically in contact and/or with eyes closed, the lines between states of order and disorder will be at times stark and at others blurred. The sensations that arise within this unstable and unbound matrix range from relaxing to energizing, from disorienting to freeing.

Workshop in Performance
What are we talking about when we focus on “performance”? Consciousness? Being, doing, enacting, responding, connecting? This workshop is designed to expand your knowledge, skills, experience, and strategies for performance. Geared for dance practitioners, the work draws on different modes of live performance, across disciplines. The two days are structured around a sequence of explorations, performance, reflective actions and discussion. Please bring in 1-3 minutes of your material for starters.

Classes this Week with: Gabriel Forestieri, Levi Gonzalez, Janet Panetta, Jennifer Nugent, Barbara Mahler, K.J Holmes, and Sabine Heubusch.

BODY of SOUND
Join an adventure into unmapped ground for voice-movement. Enter the cellular tonal field through vibrational rhythms. Open to sensory warm-ups and restorative presence. Liven to insightful finds that surprise and embrace your fun-loving elf. Respond authentically to stimulating image-sound-language prompts.

In Honor of Tom Murrin

Dear Friends,

As you may or may not know, our beloved friend writer/actor/performer/artist  Tom Murrin AKA Alien Comic is very ill and in the ICU, no visiting allowed.  Today, Thurs Mar 8 is the day of the full moon. We invite you to show your love for Tom by doing a personal full moon show/ritual today, anytime any place, and then post photos or stories about it on the facebook page for his last show: The Talking Show: The Magical Ridiculous Journey of Alien Comic.
If you need any tips, the five pointed star is always a good one: Stand with our legs apart and your arms spread wide, one hand facing up to capture Luna’s energy, one hand facing the earth to ground you. Ask Luna for peace and grace for Tom and for us all. Pass it on.

You can read more about Tom’s life and the full moon show/ritual here: http://www.thealiencomic.com/bio.htm
