• HOT SPOT: Alternativa with Kathleen Hermesdorf

    GUT Motives is an alternative contemporary dance class, an ongoing research towards a general unified theory of the act of motion from internal impulse to external expression. The work utilizes a hybrid of forms to encourage deep awareness and understanding of the body in itself and the body in motion, motivated by multiple meanings of guts, including viscera, center of gravity, courage, instinct, intuition, revelation and vulnerability.
