Dear Indoor Dancers,
I hope this finds You happy and healthy in these strange and shifting times. I had a sermon prepared on transformation, introspection, and setting priorities, but in the spirit of spending less time online (see priorities above), i won’t launch into it, and rather focus on letting You know what’s not happening and what is (for the confused: i’ve been expanding my culinary explorations during this time inside, and image above is of my homemade extra spicy mango pickle, which i’ll be more than happy to make for You once this is over. Whatever “this” is).
Not cancelled, but rather TRANSFORMED! My regular Tuesday evening classes at Tanzfabrik Berlin, Finding the Most Open Question, playing with and around Somatics, Performance, G*d/dess, the Universe, Time and Space, have moved ONLINE and are now part of Tanzfabrik’s online class program. Join me for 60 minutes every Tuesday at 6:30pm (Berlin time). Email me at email@example.com to register (at least an hour before the class starts) and for more info. International friends, join me in your own time zone, too! Very curious to check out various possibilities of sensing and moving within the spaces (of various sizes) that we inhabit in “real life” (outside the studio).
From April 22 on, the plan is to restart classes at Tanzfabrik’s Kreuzberg location, Wednesdays from 8 to 9:30pm, should things be open again… note the shift from Wedding to Kreuzberg and from Tuesday to Wednesday.
So the STRETCH Festival for Men*, April 10-12, has been, of course, cancelled, and my Introduction to S+x Magick class to go with it. Stay tuned for the most likely rebirth of the Festival in its Summer incarnation, July 17-19.
Also canceled, or should i say postponed: Weekend workshops on DESIRE and Performance in London (early May) and Helsinki (late May – very probably happening in October).
Presumably NOT canceled, quite a unique summer school, INNER LANDSCAPES (all the info here), organized by my friend and colleague Barbara Bess in Bavaria, at Kulturforum Fürth, from June 17-21. I will be facilitating around Desire and Performance, while Barbara will be offering Atmospheric Composition, and Christian Meier will be facilitating sessions on Body-Mind-Centering. Working with Barbara and Christian has been extremely rich for me personally, and this is a great opportunity to join us super cheaply – the lab is being supported by the city and state.
The Somatic Performance Lab addresses young performers, visual artists, dancers, who are interested in an intense, professional confrontation with the instrument that is the body in motion. For five days, we will come into movement together, research, and develop choreographic material.

And for those of You missing my live piano accompaniment at HZT, Marameo, or Tanzfabrik, here’s a very short clip of a little quarantine birthday improv i did for my uncle-in-law:
Lots of Love, virtual hugs, kisses,
