Write of Passage

Workshop Teacher: 
Workshop Description: 

For 30 years I’ve treasured thousands of wordless meetings on the dance floor. No cocktail party chat, no dull recitations of birthplace and work status. Just getting to know each other solely through the shape of elbow dances, the sweat of chaotic encounters, the silent grace of stillness ballets.

Now I’m fascinated with the way intimacy deepens when we add the dance of words and stories. No need to share your old, polished litany of sorrows - just describe the scent of your family kitchen, something odd that you love, the memories in your stamping feet, the first lie you told, the last three things that made you cry.

Write of Passage is an invitation to the fusion of movement and writing, two poignant paths to knowing ourselves and each other. Everything we’ve experienced lives on in our bodies, and in this weekend we both honor and release the stories that have shaped us.

Whether you love writing or freeze at the very thought, you will learn to dip your pen into an effortless stream of creative imagery. Prepare to be surprised. Prerequisites: breath, a childhood, stories, quirks, several heartbreaks, at least one secret passion, a body of any size or shape, a pen.
