MARBLES: WALDEN (WHERE ARE YOU?)
Sunday, Dec 21 2014
11:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Sunday December 21, 11am-2pm

$25, no one turned away for lack of funds.

A dance class and lab to unscript the mind that colonizes the body—a participatory re-appro-pro-pro-priation of the body as nature. Participants (re)imprint basic patterns in nature through visualization and movement exploration, mindfulness and experiential anatomy. Tapping into the tide of cerebral spinal fluids, as well as physical and metaphysical fields vastly beyond, our attentiveness shall draw forth an original dance. This is a trans/genderqueer-friendly class open to all levels of physical experience.

ABOUT MARBLES
Marbles —writes poems and sometimes dances in front of people.  They formatively lived and worked in New York City, in which time they studied dance techniques extensively in the Ailey and Limon studios before steeping themselves in improvisation, release, and experimental forms.  Their choreographic work (as Rae Shao-Lan) has been presented in New York by HERE, Danspace Project, and Joyce SOHO, and in Los Angeles by REDCAT (Roy Edna Disney Cal Arts Theater), Dance Camera West, Anatomy Riot, and LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions).  They are a founding collaborator of itch dance journal and a CHIME grant recipient.  With mentor Simone Forti, they developed and performed the practice of doing Ice Bergs over a span of five years- most recently in collaboration with composer Tashi Wada in An Evening of Ice Bergs at Pieter.  Marbles has been living in wilderness settings north of the San Francisco Bay for the past three years- writing, working with the land, and doing movement and stillness practices such as meditation, ideokinesis, and craniosacral work.  The relearning and reclamation that have come out of this period are what Marbles is attempting to translate into this and other practices.
