Hello Philadelphia area dancers,

You are invited to the next Underscore scheduled for this Saturday 10/14/17
1-4pm at the Whole Shebang.

No one has voiced a need for a Talk Through yet, so it may not happen. If
you haven't had a Talk Through ever, you need one to do the practice. Email
LorenTeachesMovement at gmail.com by 5pm on Friday 10/13/17 to secure the Talk
Through. If just one person signs up, the Talk Through will be confirmed
and then I will announce a location for a 11:30am-12:30pm Talk Through to
the greater community.

Full details on Underscore Talk Through and Practice below.

The talk through outlines the score for the Underscore with words, glyphs,
and explanations, so that each person is oriented to how to participate,
allowing for a less verbal space during the actual practice.

Something to write on and something to write with are required.

A talk through is required to participate in the Underscore Practice. This
talk through will only happen if there is a need demonstrated through RSVPs
to LorenTeachesMovement at gmail.com by 5pm on Friday 10/13/17.

"The Underscore is a framework for practicing and researching dance
improvisation that I've been developing since the early 1990s. It is a
score that guides dancers through a series of 'changing states', from solo
deepening/releasing to sensitizing to gravity and support; through group
circulation and interaction, Contact Improvisation engagements, opening out
to full group improvisation with compositional awareness, and back to rest
and reflection. - Nancy Stark Smith Read more here

Any mover who has had an Underscore talk through may participate.

This is NOT a come and go jam, rather there is a structure for a more
focused jam. Plan on committing to the whole session. Built into this long
duration, there is time for preparation and recovery.

As this is a long jam without coming and going, it is highly recommended to
bring SNACKS for yourself and ideally some to share with the group in the
harvest and thanksgiving time at the end.

It is recommended to bring a JOURNAL and PEN for reflection during the

*Knee pads are recommended for this class/session. If you don’t own a pair,
there will be some for sale at this event for $18.
