Description

I am motivated by the desire to experience a sense of justice

How, through movement, can we actualize our fundamental desire for harmony?

How might a practice of placing our mind in its body constitute an act of love?

How might framing our embodied experiences of rhythm and shape as medicinal be a source of true power?

Can we use the intelligence of our arms, fingers, breath and voices to charge and sculpt the spaces before and between us?
