Creating Intentional Performance

Intentional Performance

:  connecting deeply with self and audience :

Intentional performance blends ritual and spectacle for the pleasure of the viewer and the artist both.  Coming from a deep place of clear intention, the artist opens to receive magic and inspiration from the cosmos to enrich the performative and to transform the mundane into the sacred.  

This intention creates greater artistic expression, a deep sense of connectivity between dancer/artist and audience, urgent inspiration, and deep levels of non-verbal communication.  This communication spans space, time, and lives to unite humans into a collective understanding through the performance : connection.

This connection fosters artistic expression and investigation and furthers insight.

In transformation through costuming & adornment, collaboration betwixt artforms (music, lighting, space, decor, dance, movement, food, drink, and more) a greater artistic expression can be orchestrated - especially when all are creating from an intentional place of love and inspiration.

Through discussion, movement & meditation, and activity, we will investigate what "intentional performance means in concept and reality for each individual.   Students will leave with a deeper understanding of how to create intention in their performances and everyday lives.
