Schedule of Events:

Movement Workshop

Toddlers and children up to 12 years old 
Dance with the environment, and you are part of it! Move with Parcon Resilience and D A N C I T E C T U R E to safely explore cityscape and energy through guided group experiences and consensual movement practice. Parcon Resilience is a method for embodying social justice through a movement vocabulary inspired from Parkour (Urban obstacle course running) and Contact Improvisation (a duet form based on dialoging through weight sharing.) D A N C I T E C T U R E invites exploration of spatial and emotional atmospheres through mindful movement with an art installation.
