Transcendent Embodiment with Amelia Uzategui Bonilla and Juan Urbina
Slow down the fast-paced thoughts. Ease into the rhythm of the body. Enjoy 60 minutes of guided breathing, stretches, somatic improvisations and energy transformative reboot to celebrate being in a body. Knowledge will be sourced from Andean ritual ofrendas, Caribbean festivities, somatic dance practices, and adrienne maree brown’s “Pleasure Activism.” Exercises that encourage deep release are inspired by Anna Halprin’s Movement Ritual. Each class culminates with dances to cathartic, energizing, and soulful music. Join us as we learn to appropriately cite and weave Afro-Indigenous syncretisms into our dance practices.
Juan Urbina and Amelia Uzategui Bonilla are Latinx dance artists who met at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts in Germany. Both completed their MA in Contemporary Dance Education. Juan combines Venezuelan traditions into his contemporary dance practice: patterned steps, spatial figures, dynamics and polycentric movement. Amelia is a certified practitioner of the Tamalpa Life/Art Process® whose praxis grounds itself in decoloniality, intersectional political thinking, and the post-migrant experience. Together, they collaborate as @somaticsauce.
