Saturday, August 6
11am – 2pm
Grounding and Flying: a Movement and Expressive Arts Workshop
Sliding Scale $30 – $45
Movement play and story-telling reign in this workshop exploring the weight and sensations of moving with a manta/blanket. Participants will be introduced to the Tamalpa Life Art process, a movement-based expressive arts approach that integrates movement & dance, drawing, performance techniques and therapeutic practices. In a safe and supportive environment, we will have the opportunity to perform with our mantas and imbue them with our own meaning-making. What is the story that you delve into when you move with your manta? Open to dancers and performers from all backgrounds and levels of experience. Some mantas/blankets will be provided for participant use, but you are welcome to bring your own.
