The Monday Morning Class Series, Curated by Stacy Dawson Stearns, has fallen in love with the NIGHT. We changed. We bid adieu to the day. Fall with us into the dark comfort of evening as we continue the ongoing exchange of body-based creative practices led by teaching artists who practice within the phases of consciousness and creation. Nourish your practice and embrace Lunacy. #getheetoclass @MNCPieter

 

 

 

 

 

 

November 19, 26 and December 3: Milka Djordjevich // DANCE AND CRAFTS

 

 

 

Let’s craft movement. We’ll design, weave, engineer, deconstruct, sculpt, distort, reconfigure, destroy and resurrect dances. Let’s push our brains/bodies to the limit. Let’s make impossible dances. Failure is the only option. All movement backgrounds welcome. Get ready to move.
