Finding the Bones
Joe Goode Annex
(Early bird registration until April 1)
Learn to access your creativity in ways that benefit your creative practice, work, and life. Goode’s unique teaching style incorporates movement, writing, and spoken word. The movement sequencing is designed to facilitate an unpacking of the body, bringing it into a state of receptivity, explore the physical and emotional resonances of sound, and how personal inquiry can develop in performance.
Each day will be comprised of sessions that incorporate meditation, gentle floor exercises, opening the voice, and simple improvisational scores that focus on listening, feeling, and accepting the body. Develop skills that can be used in a creative practice, in the work place, and everyday life. A workshop for the creative body. Any Body. No dance or performance experience required. This workshop is taught by Joe Goode and a JGPG company member.

And learn to treat the performance moment as a catalyst for personal inquiry. No dance or performance experience required.
