Moving Through Resistance – Mayumi Lashbrook

Families are invited to dive into their bodies, learning how to identify/express stories that arise from within. Tune into your intuition, listen to sensation, engage in rich imagery and play in full bodied expression. This mindful practice is meant for all movers with a focus on breath, creative release and improvisation. Delight in your wholebeing expression!

Blending ideas from Somatic movement, Butoh and other creative movement forms, Moving Through Resistance is a way of playfully processing emotion through a wordless outlet.

Art AmbulanceClay and Paper Theatre

Clay and Paper Theatre presents Art Ambulance, an all ages, mini variety show – a pop up theatre to the rescue, or, “good medicine for hard times.” Art Ambulance is a street theatre and commedia dell’arte inspired show, made up of a series of short, sharp sketches that include table-top bunraku style puppetry, backpack and giant puppet images, mask, spectacle and live music. Abounding with plenty of satirical twists, Art Ambulance challenges the hoaxes, quackery and bad medicine (socially and politically) that abound in our modern lives.

Join the fun! This family friendly theatrical event will begin with a community parade and musical introduction, and end with a celebratory community dance.

December 9   |  2:00 – 4:00 PM
