Falling Leaves Jam: Harvesting Diversity

Facilitated by Sarah Young and Paul Singh

October 24, 2013 - 5:00pm to October 27, 2013 - 3:00pm

Experience Earthdance's final Seasonal Jam of the year, celebrating and embodying the quintessential qualities of fall: diversity, multiplicity, and transition. The Autumn's vibrancy of colors, shapes and forms enter our bodies as we play with a range of approaches to Contact Improvisation and community. The shifts taking place in our surrounding Berkshire mountains join with the evolutions we find in the dance. Come harvest the fruits of the passing year; rejoice in old friends, abundance and new growth!

Jam Schedule:

Place [Maker] Space

September 19, 2013 - 5:00pm to September 22, 2013 - 3:00pm

Place [Maker] Space is a 3-day interdisciplinary convergence for makers and researchers to dialogue and exchange practices that address notions of place.

Using Earthdance and its surrounds as a point of departure, Place [Maker] Space participants will invent practices, adapt technologies, analyze problems, devise experiments, and craft performances as a means of proposing “solutions” to place that privilege the embodied or experiential.
