About
Participants will be led through a series of long durational exercises to improve articulation, listening, stamina, and focus. When we are provided an opportunity to be in nature, quieten our minds, and participate in time-honed exercises and situations, it improves our ability to connect to others, hear our desires, and generate new ideas. These studiesfoster collectivity through group practice for not only artists, but for practitioners and professionals in all disciplines. Practice for genuine connection before any interpretation, giving attention to intuitive understanding and allowing for wisdom and emergence, with a deep commitment to authentic movement. Through the joyful practice of play, we keep close to our creativity and imaginations, setting aside our expectations and assumptions. glo opens up our movement practice to any human being no matter their age, size, gender, appearance or athletic training or performance experience level.
Origins
In 2009, glo began our social performance platform as a 3-week educational intensive for artists. Through shared knowledge and the circulation of public intuition, our movement exploration and social conscience has guided and evolved the platform. Our living laboratories have manifest into this year’s Summer Studies.
