Pop-Up Practice with Brendan Drake


Oct 20 2020


Eastern Time
5:00 pm




Class:  There is a madness in maintaining a movement practice in this current moment and I’m very interested in dissecting that. We’ll work a bit on ways of protecting and sustaining our bodies for dance (drawing inspiration from Pilates, Klein, Wim Hof and release methods), and then we’re going to work through some improvisational scores for movement and text that I’ve been playing with during quarantine. Bring writing and drawing materials and be ready for spontaneous conversations (about the body and then some). Tangential chit chat is self care and essential to my creative practice.
