SEEING : REPEATING : RITUAL
How do we construct our visual field and how is movement constructed by our visual field? How does perception- visual, aural, olfactory- influence movement? How can we achieve heightened perception (without mushrooms)? What is the role of repetition? And how does the connection between perception and movement relate to certain kinds of cultural rituals? This spring I will be co-teaching a course with an anthropologist at Wesleyan University. While the explorations in this workshop will be purely movement-based, they will grow out of the development of this course and the included readings and discussions about ritual, shamanism, and medical anthropology.

Classes this Week with: Margaret Paek, Emily Faulkner, Nia Love, Joanna Kotze, Barbara Mahler, Irene Dowd, K.J. Holmes, Jill Sigman, Karl Anderson
