Vairavan will lead dance and performance artists through a workshop exploring physical balance + physical/emotional boundaries as a process in creative content generation and movement composition.
The first hour will be spent warming up and generating sweat, and the second hour will be experimenting with boundary and balance through a series of exercises in composition and performance where artists are asked to hold space, witness and reflect while creating.
This session is designed for intermediate/advanced movers/dancers/yogis.
Chitra Vairavan is a contemporary Indian dancer/choreographer of Tamil/South Indian-American descent. Vairavan is immersed in both Tamil culture and progressive brown politics in the U.S. She dances to heal and creates dance to help heal others. Her embodied practice and experimental process is rooted in deep listening, freedoms, poetry, vulnerability and ancestral memory.
