7 Wednesdays, May 5 – June 16, 10-11:45AM PDT
In the northern hemisphere at this time of year, the amount of daylight increases until it reaches its peak on June 20, the Summer Solstice. During this season of late spring, the sun warms the soil and perhaps our body-based imaginations, catalyzing new life around and within us. As we move towards the longest day of the year, we will give thanks for the energizing qualities of the sun and ask:
What new growth is invigorated in my Life/Art now?
Through dance/movement, drawing, creative writing, sounding and improvisation, we will explore our inner landscapes and soak up the vitality we discover therein. Weekly opportunities for in-depth sharing with partners in small groups, over a two-month period, will help to build a sense of connectedness among the participants from a wide range of locations around the world. The series will culminate in the process of designing a score, or ritual, for your own celebration of Summer Solstice.
