Deep Play Practices
Contemplative Dance Practice, 3-part series
with Damaris Webb
Wednesday August 2nd – Friday August 4th, 2:00 – 5:00 pm

an urban retreat for the art tribe

Uncover a refreshing and holistic approach to arriving and becoming present within ‘the village’, rooted in contemplative awareness practices and the postmodern improvisational dance lineage.

Open to all humans interested in creative physical expression, this workshop is intended to support a wholesome way of being an artist in the world while strengthening our internal compositional eye, and is complementary to many styles of performance training. Yielding to deep play, we evoke our individual kinesthetic delight with an awareness of the group, showing us a path to manifesting spacious, confident and balanced improvisational expression.

Part One: The Four Postures of Mindfulness & Little Disciplines / parallel play (NOTE: Part One is a pre-requisite for anyone new to the form)

Part Two: solo forms / contemplative dance practice

Part Three: Red Square / contemplative dance practice

Space is limited, register in advance. Price valid through July 25.
$40 per session

Damaris Webb is a performer, theater deviser and teaching artist who recently (re) relocated to Portland after 26 years making and producing work in New York City. Ms Webb has created new works for the stage with diverse communities around the US and internationally. Her work lives in the intersection of contemplative dance, improvisational performance art, and contemporary theater and is often seen in non-traditional performance venues such as late night parties, warehouses and church basements, it is sometimes epic and may involve zombies, superheroes or sock puppets.

Ms.Webb holds her MFA from Naropa’s Contemporary Performance Program, and her BFA from NYU’s Experimental Theater Wing. In Portland, she offers Contemplative Dance Practice through Be Space, and is the co-Artistic Director of The Vanport Mosaic.

Damaris also hosts the ongoing Contemplative Dance Practice/Deep Play Pod at Be Space.
