Workshop: Dances (with)(in) Nature

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to teach some yoga classes at the wonderful Northern Voice 2011 Conference. It’s a social media conference, but I was lucky enough to meet a fellow yoga instructor there, Clarity Jones! She has a yoga studio, Moonhill Studio, on Cortes Island and is hosting a dance workshop that sounds kind of incredible.

DANCES (with)(in) NATURE
An experiential workshop to physically embody the archetypal flow and form of the natural environment.
July 11-16

This workshop is for dancers, actors, writers, psychonauts, and those whose curiosity hungers for visceral connection between the landscape and the senses. A fun hands-on experience suitable for people fo all levels of dance experience.

Using elements of physical theatre, Butoh dance and contact improvisation we investigate the capacity of the landscape as a point of departure. Through dance, movement and interaction we will make our bodies receptive to our inner and outer nature. Our laboratory will include the studio and the natural spaces of beautiful Cortes Island, BC.

Cost: $350 before June 1/$425 after
Accomodation and camping options are available
