LAB

dot_20pxgloPLAY

Beginning Saturday, January 4- Saturday, May 23, 2020

Beginning on January 4th, gloPLAY will offer the first of its kind movement shops for Atlanta’s youth, grades 1-10, to be free to move as freely as their spirits.

School is more and more devoted to pure instruction, and less and less time is given to play. We must have time to play: play as investigation, role play, knowing how to fall and get up again, and play as an activity that takes places without knowing what the outcome will be. More than anything, gloPLAY is about our youth having choices to move with child-like assurance.

Tuesdays 4 p.m., Saturdays 10:30 a.m. Pay what you can for all participants.

 

gloPLAY will be led by moving artist Mary Jane Pennington. Write us here for more information: info@gloatl.org

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 studies foster 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.
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.
