“I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me, And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.” -- Robert Louis Stevenson
We all know how it feels to just not want to get out of bed in the morning, to slog through the day, and finally fall back into bed. What if instead we could turn our inertia into art, our resistance into momentum? To take a chance to dance out loud the tension in a jawbone or the shoulders, embody our stick figures and move out of them fully fleshed? To give up control, dive beneath the surface and melt the ice that casts the shadows we may often find ourselves moving through?
Shadow Play is a moving meditation into what’s moving us and what’s holding us back, down, and out. A dancing investigation into what’s hiding in the shadows and how we can tease whatever it is into motion, leaving heaviness behind as we dance into effortless. It’s an opportunity to bemuse our shadows and let light be our muse. Rhythm by rhythm, step by step, Wave after Wave.
Join us on the playground. It won't be the same without you, and your shadows.
