Loving Trilogy (2019-21)

“Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath.” Michael Caine

 

We do not live our own desires. Pressing ourselves into heavy molds not made for our bodies compresses us, tears our skin, and bruises our features. It is hard to breathe. We sink.

 

Weight harbors the downward pull. It attaches itself in many ways but there are countless ways to set it down, to be free. This takes practice and skill. The common task of this class is to distinguish ourselves from the weight we carry. We shall seek out activities that contact levity: that gravity that changes our bodies, make us light of touch, aerates and propels us toward the state of buoyancy.

 

Not for the faint of heart.
