"RHYTHMS AND ELEMENTS"
16 Sep 2016 - 18 Sep 2016
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Organizer: Layah Jane Singer-Wilson
“Rhythms & Elements” is beautiful weekend workshop full of dance, and rituals, where we will use the images, symbolics and vocabulary of each element to enter into the landscape of the 5 Rhythms. We will invite the elements in our space and in our dance, one by one. This approach is expanding our perspective of the rhythms and is offering our bodies some new creative ways to move. In the same way 5 Rhythms are a part of us and live everywhere around us, we are made of these 5 elements and they are present in our everyday lives. We will find Earth for our Flowing, learn about our Staccato through Fire, dive into our Chaos through Water, lighten up our Lyrical through Air, and empty our Stillness through Ether.
“The five rhythms are a map to everywhere you want to go, on all planes of consciousness – inner and outer, forward and back, physical, emotional, and intellectual. They are markers on the way back to a real self, a vulnerable, wild, passionate, instinctive self.” Gabrielle Roth
