Some information about the project

Dances for the End of the World grew out of the ashes of the Orlando nightclub shooting.  What can we do?  How can we contribute?  Art was the answer to these questions.  Since then Jeremy Hahn and Stephen Beitler travel to different locations performing intentional movement offerings as healing during these tumultuous times.  Previous performances occurred in Malibu, Sea Ranch, Black Rock City and The Hammer Museum.  Tap into the energy and check back for more installments to this project.

Here is a brief description of the workshop.

Through this  honest investigative process that draws upon meditation, visualization, and movement improvisation. This modality nurtures the expansion of our creative capacities as we move our bodies encountering each other and sharing playfully with cooperation. This is deep work. We welcome all curious participants who are interested in exploring expressive movement as a mindful ritual. In times such as these lets explore our potential utilizing this practice to support an ongoing process of self-discovery.trishaimagenewphoto by Robert Salas and Jeremy Hahn
