Multi-tasking (9/9 and 9/10) is an improvisational and re-wiring workshop for folks who have some movement experience. It explores physical multi-tasking and pattern practices, for example learning movements on separate body parts and then overlapping and remixing them, doing them simultaneously AND independently of each other. Participants will be led through improvisational movement exercises that will challenge them to physically elaborate and shift quickly, challenging assumed movement pathways and our cognitive skills.

Techno party (9/12) is exactly that, a techno party for anyone interested in dancing to techno music and getting loose. The party will begin with offering participants some techno moves, followed by a 40 minute techno party in darkness. Inspired by Frederic Gies' own practice, Techno Somatics, this practice challenges us to stay in movement, letting go of the perceived judgement and eyes of other people, and to enjoy dancing. Sometimes I find it functions as another kind of meditation or other times, it drifts me away to other galaxies. But mostly it is a nice way to get warm and ready for the day.
