Les Saisons Movement Workshop

Melani and her musician performing Ros Hayes

Join dance artist Melani De Guzman & musician Sarah Favinger  in a 3-hour movement workshop deconstructing sensory movement patterns through her solo repertoire of "Les Saisons En Nous"

She'll create a brave open dialogue space for everyone to come together regardless of their dance experience. She'll lead an investigative warm-up opening the bodies to use sensations, dreams, and desires as a way to enter movement to articulate your personal truth. You'll get to a place of dissatisfaction- which was the catalyst of why and how Les Saisons vignettes were discovered.

"I view dissatisfaction as the deep sense of restlessness, unease, and lack of fulfillment one feels when life isn’t going their way. It is unable to rest in the present moment and accept “what is” in order to move toward a more satisfying future." - Melani DG.

We’ll explore this theme as we dive deep into the repertoire while Sarah cultivates communication techniques between her and you (mover) for more exploration of emotions that may surface through the structured improvisation of the work.
