Heidi currently leads singing with Village Harmony, The Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture, Plainfield Community Sing, Seasonal Interfaith Sacred Sings, and the Central Vermont Solidarity Singers.
Amanda Franz is an embodiment activist, movement artist and lover of all things wild. She is on a crusade to invite people into the profound intelligence of their bodies and reconnect all bodies to what’s alive, what it’s like to be a human-animal and how to bring this work into the Great Turning.
Amanda's personal areas of inquiry and training are contact improvisation, Butoh, Axis Syllabus, Authentic Movement, Body Mind Centering, Somatic Experiencing and Joanna Macy’s- “The Work that Reconnects”. Amanda currently co-creates THE EVERYTHING SPACE- a somatic education studio weaving together personal growth and dynamic social change, where she runs a private practice in somatic bodywork and movement education, teaches a slew of workshops and classes, consults with organizations for wellness workshops and somatic implementation and hosts her herbal business Wild Things Herbal Apothecary.
Jan 27th, 1-4pm, CANCELLED
with Amanda Franz and Heidi Wilson
Come explore the relationship of sound and moving bodies with Amanda Franz and Heidi Wilson, creators of The Woven Bodies Choir. Through practices of deep listening and creative vocalization, we will investigate emergent creative process.
In this afternoon workshop we will be exploring the relationship of sound and bodies, of emergent sound and organic movement. We will dive into exercises exploring the following questions:
Where does the music live in my body?
What does it feel like to tune into different emotional and physical states and to move from there?
And from that point of curiosity, what new movement patterns, authentic sounds, and harmonies can we create together?
Sliding Scale $25-50.
