The first in a 7 week series on Thursday mornings featuring a rotating cast of dance artists who will facilitate one of their favorite structured movement experiences.
A Group Shake is a communal durational practice derived from many types of shaking practices that have evolved independently and collectively over millennia.
We shake [ to music ] together for duration with the emphasis on shaking the body in various ways. This can look like dancing but we don't have to be concerned with appearance, skill or rhythm and we do not have to worry about 'liking' the music.
Group and individual ecstatic and meditative states can be achieved.
This particular Group Shake is one hour long.
Wear clothes to sweat in and water.

He is director and curator for Lion's Jaw Festival, a boston-based annual performance and dance festival that he co-founded in 2016 with his long time collaborator Sarah Mae Gibbons currently housed at MIT.
He is a believer in the power of movement, performance and the exploration of the physical self as both artistic practices and as tools to support the interrogation of systems, build community, find collaboration and joy, and to create political and social change.
