Upspring Studio’s Nutterween!

In this (slightly) deranged (new) annual aerial tradition, UpSpring explores what would happen if the Nutcracker took place on Halloween. Zombies, snow ghosts, and sea monsters dance and dangle from the ceiling. Does it make any sense? No! And that’s why we love it!

Kings and Queens
Performed by Ronya-Lee LaVaune Anderson

Friday, November 16, 2018 at 7:00 PM

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

Kings and Queens is a multi-disciplinary project designed to highlight the contributions of African-American artists to the beloved musical genre: Rock n’ Roll. The project will combine monologues, live music, projections, dance and discussion honing in on artists such as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Jimi Hendrix, Big Momma Thorton, Bo Diddley, Louis Gordon and others. Beyond noting the practice of cultural appropriation, the project will illustrate the influence of black musicians on their white successors like Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Led Zeppelin, generally considered the greatest rockers. In workshop and performance Kings and Queens links the lives and legacies of black and white artists, the richness of their synergy lost due to racial discrimination and ignorance.

Ronya-Lee LaVaune Anderson is a dancer, choreographer, singer, songwriter and educator. She holds a Master’s of Divinity from Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina, a B.A. in Dance and a B.A. in English Language and Literature from the University of Maryland at College Park.

One Woman’s Magic is Another Woman’s Engineering
Yoga + Interactive Soundscape w/ Yoko K. + Antoinette Solnik

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at 7pm

How does it feel to create music with movement? Find out in this pay-what-you-wish event! Open to all, Yoko K. & friends will create a communal space for post-election decompression. Yoga + music by Antoinette Lipani Solnik and Yoko K., then create soothing soundscape as we move together.

What to expect from Antoinette’s class: Feeling light and having fun! Invigorating our bodies, emotions and mind! We will gently move through poses using assistive props (e.g. blocks, blankets, and straps) that help promote accessibility and safety with a focus on body awareness, stability and strength, toning lesser used muscle groups and the pelvic floor. I want you to leave class feeling alive with possibility, toward being awake to what comes up in your body, feeling good, happy and wanting to return to this beautiful yoga community we have created together.
