Earth Turning: A Dialogue with Life Through Dance

What sustains and restores life in the face of danger and loss can be discovered through deep dialogue with our embodied selves and the body of the living world. In this one-day workshop we will explore, through dance and other creative practices, the messages arising from our wise, wild bodies, including other beings with whom we share this Earth. This is a community arts project intended to serve not just people, but a changing planet.

We will spend part of our time outdoors, connecting with other-than-human nature. The workshop will culminate in the creation of a movement piece, which we will perform for ourselves and with the elements of nature that choose to join us.

The workshop will be guided by Malia Matteson, M.S.
