Conversations with a faltering Heart – Workshop + Performance

Sunday, September 18, 2022 at 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

With Ashley Johnson

The afternoon begins with a performance that examines a personal history of heart disease while diving into an organ steeped in metaphor. The soundscape uses three years of echocardiograms as the dancer moves and speaks to the sounds of her own heart.

Followed by a community workshop that utilizes somatic movement, stethoscopes and interaction with clay heart sculptures to gently coax the internal body outward. Through experiencing the anatomy of the heart we ask the question – can moving bring us closer to knowing ourselves?

This work is part of a larger project; The Moving Heart is a collaboration between visual artist Karlie King and dancer Ashley Johnson, a multi sensorial interactive exhibition of clay hearts, sound, and dance.

1 – 4pm

This event is fully accessible to all bodies. Please wear comfortable clothing.

Special thanks to Traci Foster for rehearsal direction, Tom Perron for anatomy expertise and my ever patient cardiologist Dr. Colin Yeung. Clay hearts designed and sculpted by Karlie King and musical score created by Jeff Morton.

Sexual & Sensuous Embodyment 

Our sexual expression has long been targeted as a source of shame, guilt, and control. Reinforced over time as inappropriate and taboo, our sexual and sensual nature has a reputation of being dangerous.

In this class we will connect to our senses and body, through movement we will emanate radiant confidence and presence from the inside out. It is a timeless quality of beauty, sexiness, and power

Please bring water and knee pads. We will do some breathing exercises,  free movement, and a routine.  Please have an open mind.
