Shaping the Container

How often can you slow down to take in a single piece of art?

Be with it long enough to observe what comes up in body and mind as you stand before it?

What happens when you are moved or choose to simply move with other people?

Shaping the Container is an art and movement workshop inviting participants to engage with my art piece, Next Thing I Know: Shaping the Container, while taking the time to fully experience how the art can lead/shape a moving response. Jackson Heights’ movement artist, Weena Pauly-Tarr, collaborates with me to guide participants through relaxation, movement and an opportunity for choice in response to the art presented. Projection by m@. . . . Shaping the Container was supported by a Queens Council for the Arts 2018 New Works Grant. Interested in purchasing this workshop for your community or group? Contact me.
