WHAT: A dance improvisational theater workshop
"Authentic Movement explores the relationship between a mover and a witness, being seen and seeing. With eyes closed, the mover listens inwardly and finds a movement arising from a hidden prompting, a cellular impulse. Gradually the invisible becomes visible, the inaudible becomes audible, and explicit form is given to the content of direct experience.
The witness brings a receptive quality of clear attention to the mover. The witness is mindful of the inner world of sensation and meaning, judgment and criticism. Though personal shadow issues may emerge, the witness accepts the mover without analysis or direction and speaks only when the mover asks for a response. The mover and witness together can achieve a level of perception of self and other that evokes deep respect and empathy."

WHY: To engage in a practice of emotional, meditative, trance improvisation, exploring subtle and indulgent movement and thoughts and feelings to a deeper level through our bodies access to play, imagination and personal history.
Tuning in to a deeper level of consciousness, we will gain a stronger awareness of ourselves and our surroundings in a playful and meaningful way.
Following the workshop, we will perform for the community to express personal movement stories through dance improvisational theater.
Transform your story through movement and express yourself!
