Dog Dance ~ with Joanna Rotkin ~ Friday and Saturday
It's time to Dog Dance again!
If you haven't been in awhile, come, and bring a friend.
After the show we will have a wine and cheese mingle, hosted by Julie Rothschild of Floorspace.
This performance is not for everyone, for sure, but maybe it's for you.
“It’s a different pace of living we are encountering…as audience members we are slowing down so that we can meet ourselves.”
— Helen Turner, audience member
In conjunction to the performance that happens on Friday night, there's also a workshop, called Learning to Dog Dance, that happens on Saturday, July 22ndfrom 1-4pm, also at Floorspace.
It is here, in the workshop, where we culitvate a desire and curiosity about being specific and rigorous when following the dog dance state. The Dog Dance State consists of listening to the breath, noticing sensation, and valuing stillness as much as movement. The dance emerges from there.
“At the beginning of the workshop Joanna asked us to share why we had signed up. Tears filled my eyes but words did not come. Weeks later I can say that I realize that there are few things that I value more than discovering the evolving truth of my experience. Dog dance has become an integral vehicle of that journey that brings together both mind and body inquiry in a way I haven’t found before. What a gift! Thank you Joanna! “ — Abi Averitt, participant in Learning Dog Dance and Audience Member.
When I perform Dog Dance and when I teach this workshop I find a world in my body that is underneath the mud, but that is also flying.
I invite you into this world, in hopes that you too will get a chance to burrow in, and then hover and float, just above the earth.
$10 for the show, at the door.
$69 for the show and the workshop.
Both the performance and the workshop take place at Floorspace, 1510 Zamia, #101 Boulder, CO.
