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
6/17 and 6/24: Valerie McCann // PIGS IN SPACE
Pigs In Space
Getting down to get out.
We will go low, fire up our engines, and launch ourselves into space – who knows what is actually out there?!
What and Where are the edges?
This class will draw upon what I have learned and experienced with The SITI Company, Maisternia Pisni, Matej Matejka, Deborah Hay, Przemysław Wasilkowski, Elżbieta Rojek, Robert M. Hayden, and countless other teachers, collaborators, artists.
