In these sessions we will move and make individually and collectively. We will experiment with ways to “stay in the room,” and with the work we are making, by honing our interest in what we are putting into practice. Beginning with softening and invigorating our perceiving, we can come together to move with our highly personal ways of organizing, and disorganizing ourselves in time and space. With heart, we can be with the possibilities of the not clearly understood, the incomplete, and the contradictions of our practicing performance. We will make time for moving, writing, and talking.
