Sunday Process Lab
While creating performance that examines the oscillating natures of Mental Illness, Addiction, and Systemic Poverty, I'm interested in engaging with artists, health practitioners, and all those invested in either of these conditions/structures, to exchange tools and explore the capacity of dance/embodiment to tell story, capture emotion, and deepen listening. I will share text, tools, and processes I've used thus far, and ask participants to reflect on/identify/share their own practices. Together we will create and discuss, working at our fullest capacity as movers and thinkers, drawing on each other's tools to challenge our creative habits and/or inhabit new ideas. The room benefits from a spectrum of movers, thinkers, and practitioners- so if movement and creative practice interests you, please join us for this Sunday Workshop.

Pelvis: Motility & Mobility
This workshop will focus on the pelvis: embryology, bones, muscles, organs and glands and how we can utilize our embodied anatomy in our practice of moving. Through hands on practice we will dive into the systems of the body and create a deep foundation from which to expand our physical potential, and heighten our sensory awareness. Workshop is for anyone who wants to feel great and learn more about their pelvis and its contents.

A Choreographic Mind
I teach from the point of view that making is an endless quest with ever shifting ground. I encourage an attitude of fueling work with one's questions, not regarding plans or themes as prerequisites. I regard teaching as a conversational mode; my exercises are proposals in action. I am interested in giving students the ability to recognize and access states necessary to making work; intuition, perception, cognition, interiority, emotional distance, spontaneity, pleasure, will, reflection, humor.

Composing Relationships
Not as beginners, but with a beginner’s mind, we’ll examine and question the relationships (actual and conceptual) that we want to manifest in our dances. We’ll work through a variety of exercises to gather compositional tools in how to extend movement from one person to another. Please note: we’ll be working in a territory where lifts occur by happenstance, not design, and in a world where contact improvisation has yet to be invented.

Movement Research at Eden's Expressway
Sunday Process Lab
What doors do we pass through before we step onto stage, so that we are mentally, physically, and emotionally present? How can the changing weather of live performance wake us up? In this process lab we will share, explore, and invent methods of readying ourselves for performance. Through a variety of embodiment practices, a series of straightforward tasks, and a lot of idea sharing we will expand and enliven our personal pre-show regimen.
