2-Day Intensive with Mirah Moriarty (Slavic/US) and Rodrigo Esteva (Mexico)
DAY 1: Listening to the Thread: Movement Invocations
Dances arise from the stories that are held in our bodies; collective memories, experiences and inner states of being. This class focuses on physical investigations that break open our ability to listen to the mythical world, the environment and each other. Participants explore ways to enter states of transformative action. (Be prepared to sweat.) LOCATION: Finnish Hall
Day 2: OUTDOORS: Body and Place
Site-specific dance focuses on re-wilding our physical nature while sensitizing our perceptions and deepening our experiential relationship with the body and place. With the senses activated, we listen and respond to the environment with the body as our vessel for communication. The participants are guided to find the truth in the body as they move through states of awareness.
