This workshop is a synthesis of slowdanger's physical integration practice and is all levels. anna and taylor will provide somatic images, experiences, and sweat inducing grooves to move us through the boundaries that contain us. Together, we will create worlds in and of our bodies through textural imagery, duration, and transformational states. This movement practice allows us to open portals to sweat, shake and move through this durational quarantine towards new futures and forms through a non-hierarchical lens. We will work with iconography or phrase material, in a fluid capacity, using form as a threshold to deepen connections with each other, ourselves, and our virtual/physical spaces. This practice is informed by our durational studies in somatic practices, club/rave culture, contemporary dance, Authentic Movement, Movement Theater, Corporeal Mime, and improvisational forms.
