May 2-6 | INFINITE BODIES with Alicia Grant (TO)
In this workshop, we will train strength, joy and power starting from wherever you are. We will train resilience. Riffing off of our own experience and the presence of the group, we will dance the cellular and molecular connections of our chemical bodies. Can we shake our cells and change the space around us and within us? Can we tap into infinity? Is it possible to set up conditions for uninhibited, wild dancing? Can we work hard and have fun doing it? Can we make instant decisions?
Can your vulnerability become your power?
There will be questions concerning: boundaries, limits, expectations, choice-making, togetherness, autonomy and surprises. Principles from the dance freak lineage, neurophysiology, Feldenkrais, Kundalini Yoga, Klein Technique, Malala Yousafzai and Craniosacral Therapy will be osmotically transmitted throughout the workshop.
Bring your USB stick. You WILL want the playlist. Pop music will exercise its medicinal power.
She is interested in power dynamics, transformation, fear and intimacy. She works on this through moving, sweating, impossible tasks, durational experiences in saunas, yelling and running around, walking backwards through the woods, OSHO dynamic meditations, dancing to loud pop music, buying party materials, conversations with friends and strangers, reading books on space, cooking, breathing, crystals and fiction from the library, and cellular physical perceptual exercise.
