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

 

 

 

 

 

4/22: Stacy Dawson Stearns // TALKING OUT LOUD SAYING WORDS

 

 

 

*A class about saying stuff on stage while dancing or just standing there*

UnMUTE your performance! You may be:

 

 

-a dancer who wants to make and use text

-an actor who is sick of the script and ready to put your own voice into the stream

-a seasoned performance talker trapped in sense-making and habits

-a living novel seeking form

 

 

Come to class this Monday and get verbal with your body! Stacy is no stranger to making words for performance and loves to work with others so they can shake out the wonders of their creative consciousness. Come experience verbal birthing tools such as “talking contexts”, “unspooling”, and “surrender to the ghost”. All experience levels welcome- this work is as individualized as your pinky prints and just as trippy.
