ON STILLNESS AND ACTION

14 - 18 January 2019

Our physical, psychological, and cultural habits are deeply intertwined. The past is encoded in the present. Aesthetic acts pass through the internalized concepts we begin to call home, and shape our present future.

Using Zazen meditation practices and teachings for the mind, as well as contemporary dance technique and theory, we'll explore how awakening and creativity can be expressed in and through the body. We will look more deeply at the roots of our collective aesthetic preferences, how they  shape perception and pre-choreograph action.

In stillness, we will consider traditional meditation practices and see what insight they offer to the process of making art. In movement, we will translate these ancient teachings into contemporary sense-based exercises, problems to be unfolded somatically. Each day will include meditation, discussion, movement, and group practices.
