This practice/workshop/ritual is an invitation to experience and share in community achugar's practice developed through years of making performances as a tool for liberating ourselves from presupposed ways of being in our bodies and allowing a more liberated and utopian future self to emerge. Via this practice we investigate ways of uncovering what's already present (but perhaps repressed or suppressed/oppressed) in ourselves, and how to create the conditions to let it manifest and appear on its own.
ThIS Body Tumbles, Dances, and Partners
February 28th | 6:30-8:30pm
An upbeat, judgement-free and social class for all people of all genders, sexualities, body types and levels that uses dance, tumbling and partner acrobatics to build strength, flexibility and coordination.
Exploring various levels of cartwheeling, handstands/hand-balancing, rolling and weight sharing one will gain communication skills and confidence in relying on one's own body as well as trusting that of a partner(s). We will work to develop confidence and community by creating movement TOGETHER. We will work to individually challenge ourselves at our own pace to move in new and exciting ways. ALL LEVELS WELCOME. This class was developed at BAX through its Creating Space program
Theater to the People
Mondays | 7-9 pm
March 4 - April 8, 2019
Showing: Saturday, April 13th, 7-9pm
A theater-making class open to adults (18+) of all levels of skill and experience, with a special focus on how the act of creative play can be a form of self-care and self-awareness. Being an adult in our society often requires the dulling of sensations, thoughts, and images that we think of as "unproductive" to our multi-tasking lives. Sometime our imaginations live within the limits of our cellphones. This workshop encourages all participants to release their imaginations and reconnect with their human essence through creative practice.
