Happy Friday, Dance Fans!
November was so busy that i didn’t even have time to send out one of these… Australian mastermind Renae Shadler and i had a first showing of our collaborative work in progress Naming It at Lake Studios Berlin and i performed in choreographer Canan Erek’s site-specific project dance poetry in Wuppertal – some video here.
November was also a month of political fatigue, fear, and one hopes, rebirth. Not sure we need another white male opinion piece right now, so i’ll just refer You to the elegant prose of Oakland activist Cat Brooks here.
And if You think dance newsletters are no forum for politics, there’s always the unsubscribe button below.
Two workshops to finish the year, both on my long-researched subject of Dance, Desire, and Performing the Erotic Body:
First off, i’m super, super excited to bring секс и пространство to St. Petersburg, Russia (!) on December 10 & 11. The workshop will be happening all day both days at the Human Architecture Lab, run by the amazing Liliya Burdinskaya. Thanks Liliya for inviting me! Email Liliya for more information and to register!
And then, Berlin! For those of You who keep asking when i’ll be offering something in Berlin again, my friend and fab performer Daniel Hellmann is organizing a two-day Sex & Space workshop with myself at the marvelous ada Studio, located in the Uferstudios, December 29 & 30. If You have no plans for the dark days during what the Germans call “between the years”, come join us as we shine a little light on the end of the year. Email Daniel to register!
Wishing You lots and lots of love. Stay safe, compassionate, and curious.
Best from Berlin,
