Saturday, August 12th
10am to 5pm
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
You probably know yourself really well. But, what do you not yet know? We live in a modern world that loves to label. How would you describe yourself if you couldn’t use words? What words would come out of your body if you didn’t say them? What are the parts of your story you haven’t heard yet? What movements has your body not made yet? When we gift ourselves time to venture into the unknown parts of ourselves, we receive the treasures that lie waiting. How we organize ourselves in modernity requires a quick clip, a snapshot of identity. I mean, in the spirit of play, who are you without your zodiac sign, enneagram type, diagnosis, nervous system tendency, attachment style, love language? Who would we be if we zoomed into that reel so far it became unrecognizable and distorted? When we bring light to the seeds buried beneath familiarity, we grow a new movement, a new story. Let us place what we know about who we are gently to the side, and risk discovering together.
We will be WRITING, MOVING and DANCING. Hell yes! You don't need any experience in any of these modalities to be here. Our work is for everyone.
Who are your guides?
