Portrait of Jasmine Hearn Tanya O. Williams


MON/FRI 10am-12pm

Danspace Project, 131 E 10th St New York, NY 10003

We will investigate how the body is able to use memory, sensation, and imagination as ways to enter movement to articulate story, ancestry, and personal truth. With a background in various dance forms and traditions, BodyMindMovement, yoga, and, vocalization, this time is committed to the facilitation of an environment that gives space for folks to connect with their own fantasy and feeling. Using language from family, community, and mentors, there will be a putting together of the pedestrian, the virtuosic, the functional, the subtle, the fantastical, the soft, and the vulnerable. Our time will end with a phrase using memories of home and the waters that have visited us as source.
