The dance community of southwest Vermont has taken this unusual summer of 2020 to work outdoors, in backyards, and open areas to create our own responses to COVID-19 through dance. The project was initiated out of a sense of deep loss in not being able to dance together in our usual dance class setting. Everyone had to work within the specific guidelines for social distancing and wearing of masks. It has been somewhat strange to work this way but also wonderfully gratifying to be in each others presence, sharing mutual support and solving the challenges of the day together.
"A TRAVELING PARTY DEDICATED TO RELENTLESS SELF-PROGRESSION AND THE PURSUIT OF FEARLESSNESS."
A free event on Sunday, September 20th from 5-7:30pm at the State Capitol Lawn in Montpelier, VT.
5-6pm West African Dance Class
6-7pm Making Spoken Word Speak with Rajnii Eddins

Movers 12 and up of all experiences and abilities, join THE ACTIVATION, organized by artists Millie Heckler, Angelina Ponzio Labate and Hanna Satterlee with videographers Paul Bronislaw Kmiec and Marni Leikin.
This one-time event aims to create and hold space for people to join in a movement meditation & site specific public installation. A simple movement score will be introduced on site, with the option to participate in a guided live interview. The footage will create a short film rallying people to vote and make change.
Join us for the "SoBo Studio Social Distance Show" 4pm on Saturday, Sept. 26 at the Outdoor stage at Living Memorial Park (aka Rotary Theater) at 61 Guilford Street in Brattleboro, VT! ALLLLLL the FEELINGS of quarantine wrapped into one demented bundle of joy, pain, confusion, and ecstatic despair.

Your senses will be tickled, titillated, provoked and stroked!
