Skimming the Surface: Expressive Movement Workshops
Get excited… Valerie Green is coming to MAR+RC in April!!
Skimming the Surface: Expressive Movement Workshops will be taught by Valerie on April 22nd-23rd. These workshops will help participants release blocked energy causing stress or discomfort in one’s life, and are designed to integrate movement, feelings, and emotions. Our time together will feature gentle expressive movement exercises leading participants on their own personal movement journey within a nurturing and safe group environment. When using the language of movement rather than words, a different kind of image or emotion may arise, words label what we know, expressive movement reveals the unknown. Repressed emotions can shut down the immune system causing pain and illness. This workshop aims to find a physical expression to the feelings, whereby a healing process can begin, and will help you find grounding in inhabiting the power of your own presence.
Along with the workshops, there will be a Community Connection Pot Luck Lunch where participants will get a chance to relax, unwind, and build community while eating yummy food together!
There will also be a showing of “Time Capsule – A Physical Documentary”, which is a dance film, directed and choreographed by Green, eight solos physically trace emotional experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic, against a backdrop of iconic NYC landscapes. A dynamic interplay of beauty, strength, and resilience, & “Time Capsule” is a testament to the faith we have in our City, its vast infrastructure, the delicate spirits that inhabit it, and the tender terrains we all hold within.
