May 20, 2018 - 5:00pm to May 27, 2018 - 3:00pm

A week-long workshop 

Tracing the 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 in the 9th occurrence of this intensive at Earthdance since 1998. Each 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?

Bootstraps: An American Fable - an evening performance

August 19, 2017 -
7:00pm to 9:00pm

Acrobatic, slapstick, and sung, two Americans battle their way across a cardboard landscape in search of The Dream. Did we mention they are white, middle class, and kinda unaware? 

Bootstraps challenges audiences to question how we otherize our neighbors, how success is constructed and the role white people can play in perpetuating and dismantling systems of oppression. Featuring raw, powerhouse performances from Kaitlin June and Raphael Sacks in the roles they were born to play, and directed by Shawn Shafner, award-winning taboo-breaker.
