Moving Together at Night: New Class Series     Registration     A consecutive 4-week movement class series for adult humans.  Join me from 6pm-8pm for 4 consecutive Wednesday evenings in the warm light of the gold saucer studio.  September 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th.   We will move, perceive, practice, sweat, and unravel.  We will use imagery as a way of tapping into our bodies' deep intuitive knowledge. We will practice moving continuously and un-preciously. We will learn to move in and out of the floor with ease and suppleness. We will practice seeing things from down low, up high, and upside down.  We will dance to music.  This class is for you if you have been looking for an introduction (or re-introduction) to dance, and a space to do it. This class is for you if you have a creative practice that you have a hunch that movement might supplement. This class is for you if you are an adult human who would like to try something out.

The Talking, Thinking, Dancing Body (TTDB)    is a facilitated conversation about aesthetics, context and artistic process. Initiated in 2012 by Lee Su-Feh, it encourages speaking about dance from an awareness of our bodies as well as the world it lives in. It unabashedly interrogates dance through a lens that is concerned with anti-colonialism, anti-racism and feminism. Since 2015 it has been co-facilitated by Sadira Rodrigues and Justine A. Chambers. In 2019 it is co-facilitated by Alexa Mardon and Rianne Svelnis, with guest artists.      Buy a book! by contacting alexa.mardon@gmail.com
