Authentic Movement Practice with Tahni Holt + Hannah Krafcik

Authentic Movement Practice with Tahni Holt + Hannah Krafcik

Authentic Movement is a simple form of self-directed movement. It is usually done with eyes closed and attention directed inward, in the presence of at least one witness. Movers explore spontaneous gestures, movements, and stillness, following inner impulses in the present moment. The witness watches and tracks inner responses to the mover with the intention of not judging, but focusing on self-awareness.

Authentic Movement cultivates a contemplative frame of mind, clarity of perception, and movement that is personally enhancing. The particular relationship between mover and witness, in moving and being seen by another, creates a powerful framework within which this work takes place.

Tongue Dance Project Pop-Up Dance Class

Tongue Dance Project Pop-Up Dance Class

Tongue Dance Project was formed in 2014 by Stephanie Gilliland and Lauren Smith as a vehicle for choreographic exploration and artistic development in contemporary dance. The focus of the company is the evolution, creation and production of the artistic work of Gilliland in collaboration with the dancers.

Our class consists of a yoga-based warm up that incorporates floorwork and somatic practices. We then move into traveling phrases that include the utilization of momentum and efficient movement. Class ends with either a phrase that references company repertory and movement language or improvisational studies. Our focus is extreme physicality and athleticism, while also exploring gestural movement and full body articulation.

 Wednesdays: 4/4, 4/11, 4/18, 4/25 // 7:30PM-9:00PM // $10 suggested donation

Alters of Reconsiliation Workshop led by Tracy Broyles

Alters of Reconsiliation Workshop led by Tracy Broyles

ALTARS OF RECONCILIATION WORKSHOP at FLOCK led by Tracy Broyles (movement/dance/core energetics); with jaime lee christiana (object making), and Adrian Hutapea (sound.)
INVITE. INVESTIGATE. GO DEEP. RELEASE.

Both movement and image arise from a place of abstract understanding- of intuitive depth that bypasses the language of our everyday interaction and presents itself through form, color, shape and dynamic. By making the invisible visible we can interact, observe and allow what has come out to impress back upon us.

In this workshop we invite the expressions of the un-analyzable through practices rooted in creative play- giving our unconscious a container for emergence. Each day will begin with a guided movement warm up, then transition to object experimentation and reflective altar building. The day will finish with improvised creative play time to sink deeper into how the aspects of energy and movement, object and altar, relate both on the outside and inside of you.Thematically building over the course of the 4 days, the last day will have a longer period of play accompanied by live music, as well as time to integrate the workshop through conversation.

June 24- 27 // Sunday- Wednesday // 9:30-12:15 am.
