MAY 3 TEACHING with ABBY CRAIN AND MARGIT GALANTER
RELEASE AND TUNE: an afternoon of letting go and tuning in!
Led by Art Workouts: Abby Crain and Margit Galanter.
Saturday, May 3rd, 2:30 – 4:30pm
At THE POSSIBLE, Berkeley Art Museum
This Art Workouts hosted afternoon will consist of one hour Releasing, Easing, and Unleashing class taught by Abby Crain, and one hour of Tuning Scores taught by Margit Galanter.
RELEASING, EASING AND UNLEASHING is a movement based practice rooted in Open Source Forms which fosters the dynamic interplay between imagery, consciousness, releasing, and the unpredictable dynamism and mutability of the unfettered body in motion. No movement experience or training is necessary!
TUNING SCORES are great way to explore performance, movement behavior, the shared environment, and communication, altogether. Originated by Lisa Nelson, the Scores are a kaleidoscopic set of explorations that reveal live composition through movement and our multiple senses. Tuning is for people from all backgrounds and disciplines.
