12-2pm Saturday May 28th, 2022
The Makers Space (Vern Burton), Port Angeles

j

Seeking dancers, movers, & somatic enthusiasts to join in a quietly brave movement experiment.

 

 

Put on a headset and explore the seemingly invisible ways in which we move alone and together through grief. Inspired by the works and words of both known and overlooked past female artists and activists from bell hooks to Ana Mendieta to Sophie Scholl.

 

Dancers must attend one 'cloud workshop' 12-1pm May 21 or 22 at Olympic Theatre Arts in Sequim & dance at one allotted time slot (20-40 minutes) between 2-4pm on Saturday, May 28th.

In exchange they get 1 day pass to the festival. No specific dance training needed to join, just a willingness to move & explore.

Space is limited. To join, email: info@auroradances.org

Want to join but can't make workshops? You can come to event on festival day, Saturday, May 28th anytime between 2-4pm.* It is free to the public. First come first serve. So come on by and move with us. 
 

* Only dancers who attend prior workshop get day pass to festival.

Where the Clouds Grow is an interactive movement experience that explores the often subtle and seemingly invisible ways in which we move alone and together through grief. This experience offers attendees the opportunity to both witness as well as participate in the live event. Each participant will receive a headset that provides a 20-minute guided audio, which includes storytelling and simple movement prompts. The directions are poetic and encourage body-mind awareness. Inspired by the works and words of both known and overlooked past female artists and activists from bell hooks to Ana Mendieta to Sophie Scholl. Where the Clouds Grow invites participants into a hidden dance in order to reveal insights that might otherwise go unnoticed.
