MOonhORsE celebrates DANCE with our 20th anniversary online program - Older & Reckless: 20 years of Age on Stage - presented by Kelowna’s Rotary Centre for the Arts on Saturday, May 1 at 7:00pm PDT in BC (10:00pm EDT in ON). The link will be available until May 4.
If you missed it in November, here is a chance to see 4 sublime dance films including William Yong’s award-winning Noppera-bō 野箆坊 with Denise Fujiwara, video excerpts of 2 outdoor works with 31 dance artists and 10 community movers. Stay for a live chat with the artists after the May 1st event!
Dance has carried us through the past year. Moving our bodies, opening our hearts and exposing the depths of our feelings helps to bear the weight of these challenging times. We are grateful to the artists who continue to lift us through their offerings!
...And more from our friends!
Join our friends at lbs/sq" & Moving Voice Institute...
THIS SATURDAY at 12:00pm EDT for VOICE/BODY/MIND PRESENCE with Denise Fujiwara & Gerry Trentham via Zoom!
Denise Fujiwara & Gerry Trentham will guide you towards ways of opening the mind, body and voice to states of curiosity and creativity. This integrated voice and movement practice will allow us to shed the debris and distractions to our pandemically challenged attention spans and notice how the great uncertainties of this time are also gates to creativity and freedom, and ways to arrive more deeply in the voice and body work.
