Anatomy of Presence
with Leigh Evans
(workshop cancelled)

Nov 18 (Fri. evening) – Nov 20 (Sun. afternoon)


What is presence? How do we awaken presence in the body?How can we cultivate this intangible quality that draws people in and leaves an image burning in the mind? Streams of awareness dissolve the rockbed of forgotten inner landscape. Contact the energetic source of your creativity and cultivate inner presence. Develop an intuitive, awakened body, through Butoh, Suzuki Theater Method, Indian Odissi Dance, Yoga, and Authentic Movement. Awaken awareness practices to integrate unconscious impulse with conscious creative expression.
