Workshop with Peter Ryan – DANCING IN THE NOW – July 25 to 29

In Workshops on June 28, 2011 by danceumbrella

DANCING IN THE NOW [or, exploring the spontaneous]

An Ottawa workshop intensive with Guerilla Heart Juice’s Peter Ryan

‘smack dab in the middle of summer, a chance to dance like there’s no tomorrow…’

We all know about being present and in the moment; one of the best ways to experience this is physically, with the body. Dancing in the Now will give you a host of opportunities to practice presence, to act and to react almost simultaneously, to be authentic about what is happening and what you are doing, alone and with others.

We will tune body, mind and senses to move quickly, gracefully and lightly, yet also to sustain longer and slower movements when appropriate. Using a variety of dance and theatre techniques, together we’ll create brief but rich realities, working only with the most important of materials: ourselves. And some music, of course.

The work will be demanding, but not out of reach of any reasonably fit and healthy person. Prior movement and/or dance is welcome but not necessary. Your willingness to plunge into the thick of things will be most valuable both to you and to the group.
