Bearnstow at Parker Pond – July 17 – 23, 2016

July 17 – 23, 2016, I will be teaching an intensive called Combining Disciplines for Creative Practice – a workshop exploring improvisational and somatic approaches to dance making- at Bearnstow on Parker Pond in Maine.

 Each participant will create a solo with materials we engage with such as Body-Mind Centering (r) principles, Contact Improvisations, tunings of body and voice through exploring evolutionary and developmental movement patterns, our senses and perceptions, yoga, voice and theater.  We will work inside, outside, together and also have time to wander in personal ideas and the beautiful nature we will be surrounded by.

Bearnstow is a retreat away from other distractions deep in the woods on a wonderful lake – a camp that has been run (and still is)  by the singular and sensational Ruth Grauert since 1946.  

 There really are not many, if any, places that are like Bearnstow anymore.   Please go to the web site for more information.
