Moving's View: EVOLUTIONARY

with Susan Schell, Karen Nelson, and Nancy Stark Smith

May 16, 2016 (All day) to May 22, 2016 (All day)

Tracing the history and living evolution of forms in and through our own bodies, this workshop dives into and weaves together Contact Improvisation, Authentic Movement, the Underscore, Tuning Scores, meditation, and other current passions. Each dancer’s body-mind is a map of evolutionary territory no matter where we are on the spectrum of experience. How does a sense of contributing to developing forms live in each of us?
