Happy Summer, Dance Fans!


I hope this finds You all fabulous! It’s a busy couple of months, so will try to give You the newest latest, hippest freshest, without much embellishment, not always an easy task:

TOMORROW, Wednesday August 21, 9pm in Seattle! Sonata, my short film from 2015, will be screening as part of the “Best of SECS Fest” event at Seattle’s Grand Illusion Cinema. Everyone i know in Seattle: Go! Alice, this means YOU!

This coming Friday, August 23, from 7pm: I will be contributing to the official grand opening of a new queer, se+-positive art space in Berlin, Karada House, by performing my predictive one-on-one performance, Se+ual Fortune Telling. Come and discover your se+ual future here!  I’m excited about this new space, and warmly invite You to help us inaugurate it in style. Other performers the same evening include Caritia and Bishop Black.

Continuing the Karada House opening week, i will be offering my workshop The Choreography of a Play Party, Thursday August 29, at 7:30pm. For those who keep asking me when they can take a workshop in Berlin, this is a rare opportunity. The three-hour workshop is a good introduction to the work around intimacy, desire, and boundaries that i’ve been busy with for the past 6 or so years. Sign up here!

September 3-8, near Barcelona: Facilitating two workshops, a shorter version of The Choreography of a Play Party, and my ever-popular Spanking for Beginners, at the Touch & Play Barcelona 2019 Festival: Politics of Pleasure.

From September 10, my regular Tuesday evening classes at Tanzfabrik Berlin (in Wedding, at Uferstudios, Studio 3, 8pm), restart. Come join me every week for Finding the Most Open Question, a somatic approach to performance.

And now for something completely different: Monday September 16 at 2pm, and Tuesday September 17 at 10am: performing in handsome Martin Nachbar’s piece Männer Tanzen (suggested for ages 7 and up), at the Feld Theater for Young Audiences in Berlin. Come and see me do something kid-friendly! Small theater, reservation recommended.

Saturday October 5, & Sunday October 6: teaching a full weekend workshop on BDSM & Choreography, for Authentic Eros, at The Village, Berlin. This workshop is open to men* of all genders.

Saturday, October 19: Sonata again, this time screening at Choreoscope, the International Dance Film Festival of Barcelona

Sunday, October 20, & Monday, October 21: Excited to perform in my friend Akemi Nagao’s piece Verbotene Liebe, in the context of her M.A. Choreography studies at HZT Berlin, at the Ernst-Busch-Hochschule für Schauspielkunst.

November preview: Teaching morning classes (Pleasure – a contemporary technique class) at K3 Hamburg, November 11-14, and a workshop on men* touching men* at the fabulous Body IQ Festival in Berlin, November 15-17.

Congratulations if You made it this far down! Hope to see You at any and/or all of these!

Sending lots and lots of love through the ether.
