*Saturday, January 11th 12-3PM*

*Every Anus is a Portal/Harmless Dancing with Hana van der Kolk (Troy, NY)*
*Words from Hana about the workshop: *
I've been moving with a curiosity about energetic sphincters and actual
sphincters in the body, with a vested interest in the anus as a very real,
fleshy site of de-shaming and care-full mediation between inner and outer.
So, we'll move through breathing, awareness and movement practice centered
around this sphincter work, which seems to lend itself to at once subtle,
vulnerable, bold, and deeply pleasure-filled moving. A sweaty workout time
will tread between aerobics absurdity, gender fuckery, bodily conundrums,
communal folk dance, and mindful movement. Some group inquiry/practice will
place intimacy with self, other, and surroundings and an embodied culture
of harmlessness and care at the center of a shared value system for
working. Text, coming from radical, contemplative feminisms and
spirituality studies will dance with our dancing (i.e. we'll read a bit
together). We'll also speak with one another and perhaps write a bit. This
workshop is open to all bodies and levels of experience with
movement/dance/performance/contemplative practice.
