CULTIVATING THE 3RS: RESPONSIVENESS, RESISTANCE, RESILIENCE
How can our breathing connect us to a sense of spaciousness? How can we use the support of gravity to ground ourselves even as our lives feel like they are slipping out of our control? How can we engage our strength without undue tension as we resist the status quo? How do we connect across individual differences to form strategic alliances?
This workshop is situated at the intersection of somatics and politics – the place where bodily perception meets social engagement—where self meets other. Bridging physical exploration and social engagement, this experiential workshop explores how intentional physical practices can provide an embodied ground for our lives with others. We will begin to chart the ways in which our dancing explorations can foster communal interaction and civic responsibility as well as individual empowerment.
