Here are 2 opportunities to expand creative community - explore
creative movement (Butoh/Viewpoints weekly workshops on Sundays) and
participate in / support / witness an ecological performance event
("The Water Project"):


SUNDAYS, 11am-1pm (starting July 5th, ongoing weekly)
@ Rhythm Industry Performance Factory
1013 S. Tyndall Avenue
(1 block W. of Park Avenue, just S. of 20th Street)
Sliding Scale: $10-15

BUTOH ("dance of darkness" / "zen dancing"), created by Tatsumi
Hijikara and further developed by Kazuo Ohno, is a contemporary
Japanese dance form that materialized in response to WWII and cultural
traditions such as Kabuki Theatre. Butoh is connected to nature and
the human condition - it is about "being" rather than "expressing",
transformation and metamorphosis. Explorations will occur in a wide
spectrum, from the grotesque to the ecstatic.

VIEWPOINTS, created by Mary Overlie and further developed by Anne
Bogart, is a theoretical practice of deconstruction & reconstruction
for post-modern theatre and dance, experienced through improvisation
with ensemble and individualized movement. Sensing, listening,
witnessing, and playing are part of developing group synergy as we
intuitively and spontaneously move through space and time. Generating
bold theatrical work quickly, it develops flexibility, articulation,
and strength in movement.

ALL levels of dance and theatre experience are welcome!
