Embodying the Radical FeminineSomatic Technologies, Archetypes & The Language of Performance

(contact anetris@tttpdx.org for information and registration)

In this workshop we will develop archetypal somatic templates for facets of the Greater Feminine: Aphrodite, Artemis, Hestia, Demeter and Kali.

We will use embodiment of the elementals (water, earth, air, fire),activation of the chakras, organs & meridians, and 
other somatic and shamanic practices 
to practice shape-shifting between archetypes.
We will then use these characters/states-of-being/essences to create 
improvisational etudes using the Languages of Performance (i.e. spatial architecture, time, dynamics, presence, etc.).

Mondays, 6 sessions, October 7-November Nov. 11
invitation-only showing on Nov. 18

Doors open to warmup at 7:00, and class is from 7:30-10pm.

There is no fee for this workshop, 
but participants must commit to the whole session (some allowances possible) and commit to a daily practice of at least 10 minutes on their own.

It is appropriate for performers of any gender or orientation.
