Elect-Shun: a workshop exploring the movement of choice & the choice of movement.
Movement workshop developed for dancers and movers of all levels. An introductory investigation into the action of choice and the relationship to other through the medium of movement. Negotiating choice within the studio space is used reflect upon how we negotiate choice within larger socio-political contexts. Conflict resolution and mediation models are used to experiment with physical and conceptual questions of our movement.
On January 6th, I turned 55. With my birthday falling right after the marking of the new year I find two reasons to re-evaluate the past, examine the present, and contemplate the future. In lieu of waxing on about the joys and challenges of being an aging artist I would rather share two artists who continue to question and make work. At 80 and 101, Joan Jonas and Carmen Herrera, are quite the example of the art of aging as an artist and give me such inspiration as I embark on another year’s journey of creation. Enjoy the following links to some of their amazing contributions and I encourage you to travel down the rabbit hole of information to investigate their work. I think you will be inspired regardless of your age.
