    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.

  • Contact Improvisation with Cookie Harrist

    In Cookie’s contact class, we use energetic and anatomical systems in the body as the basis for improvisational scores in partnership. We initially tap into currents and landscapes in our individual bodies (breath, blood, density, weight, temperature, electricity) and then seek to attune our system to another’s. We play with the scope and specificity of our attention to expand improvisational possibility.
