Moving Arts Lab 2015

August 20, 2015 - 5:00pm - August 23, 2015 - 3:00pm



Come investigate and experience the ways that movement, sound, and performance inform human culture.

With multiple classes a day, teaching artists and participants from around the world create an international dialogue at the intersection of modalities. Connecting with nature and frolicking with a host of forms - voice, Contact Improvisation, site-specific/durational performance, physical theater - Moving Arts Lab revitalizes your creative energy in any medium.

"Participating in such artistically rich and generously shared creative practices within a gorgeous natural setting reminded me both of my love of nature as well as how art-making can occur in so many different ways within diverse environments." - MAL 2014 Participant
