July 3 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EDT
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Friday, repeating until July 31, 2020
5 Fridays, July 3 – July 31, 10-11:30am PDT
We are living in an unprecedented historical moment, from the Covid-19 pandemic to the worldwide uprising for racial justice, to climate change.
How do we move as individuals within the larger world dance?
What art do we need to create for a meaningful response to these times?
In this 5-class series, we will use the expressive arts (somatic-based movement, dance, drawing, and creative writing) to support us in discovering how current world events live in and through our own bodies; to resource ourselves through embodiment and artmaking; and to explore new possibilities within our own somatic and creative experiences that can guide us in how we want to relate to and dance with the larger global body.
Moving in the World aims to open creative bridges between the thread of our personal lives and the social fabric of which we are a part.
To get the most out of this online class, please prepare a comfortable space to move in with access to your online device. Also, have art supplies ready at hand for the drawing activity.
