This winter, collaborating artists Tia Kramer and Eric J. Olson will take up residence at the Olympic Sculpture Park to research, workshop, and realize their participatory project, Orbiting Together. Where we once used the horizon and stars to locate ourselves, we now look to our phones, rarely considering our bodies in relation to celestial objects orbiting overhead.
THE PHYSICAL ORBIT: Movement Workshop
Join us for our upcoming Orbiting Together SOMATIC MOVEMENT WORKSHOP. Over the course of the last few weeks, Orbiting Together participants have been collectively receiving text messages with mindfulness instructions. These texts hone participants’ instinctual sense of direction and connection to their environment. During this workshop we will dive deep into these ideas.
By turning our attention inward, we reconnect to the body's instinct, following our own movement impulses and desires. Exploring rhythm, momentum, and stillness, we re-enliven our body's authentic expression, together creating a rich terrain of group awareness. With eyes open and closed, we will move with and will be moved by others, collectively expanding our imaginations towards making the impossible possible.
