BE / WITH is a performance series that invites artists with a practice of improvisation to come together for an impromptu dialogue. The audience will choose pairings of musicians with dancers and something will unfold, just once, never again to be experienced. BE / WITH is a response, a small gesture, an act of opening up instead of closing off in uncertain times, to the pressure to exist in isolation, and to experience art without intimacy of sharing space, community, and collaboration across disciplines and backgrounds.
The material is inspired by the Axis Syllabus principles for motor skills which is derived from different sciences such as anatomy, physics and bio-mechanics. We will investigate the body's function in movement and research and fine tune our understanding of the human body, it's organization, and it's optimal function in dynamic and quotidian movement. Classes will focus on different weekly topics such as Gait -mechanics, spiral lines, landing and launching pads, spinal mechanics, motor masses, rhythm and more! Classes are $12-20 (sliding scale)
