On my birthday this year, I did my favorite thing, which was to hold a space for people to move their bodies, express their feelings and laugh. Times are very confusing right now. I sometimes feel sad and lost. But when I hold these event's and move with other people I regain my sense of self and a desire to be in the world. Bodymovement is an experience that I guide using my background as a Dance/Movement Therapist, Dancer, Yoga Teacher, Playful Human, Nature Connecter and Conduit for Connection.
This is my ultimate art, alive in these moments of class as people improv and express their feelings through different exercises. It is ephemeral, does not waste resources and leaves people who attend with glowing skin and smiles on their faces.
In our Capitalistic world, we put value on this concept of what we can own or on what can own us. Branding ourselves constantly to be sellable, but really just wanting to be loved... Value becomes further perverse when we try to sell things to each other like eternal youth and perfect ways of living.
Bodymovement is a place to leave these systems of judgement and value behind. It is a place to create in the moment and for the moment. While there are focused exercises and even performances that come out of it, I choose to keep the work true to the feelings and needs of those participating. I am interested in creating art that promotes well being.
