Lets get to work.
The body is the archive of our lives. It is the archive of our lived experience, literally holding memory, attachments, and patterns in all of its material, from skin to bones.
It is the archive of our ancestral memory, through stories stored in our DNA, and the cellular reproduction of patterns and responses that has enabled our survival. It is even an archive of our shared environment, as it absorbs and analyzes every space we traverse.
It contains the innate ability to listen and tune into the rhythms of the earth and sky, a practice that we (as industrialized people) have long forgotten.
Some would assert that the body also contains the salt of the sea and the dust of stars.
It has everything we need to work with the material of our lives, the parts of us that keep unjust systems in place, and forge a deeper, more sustainable relationship with this planet, and the beings that live on it.
We must anchor our ability to continually (patiently, gently, bravely) return to the body as both site and resource for personal and collective change.
Lets Get to Work.
EMBODIED ARCHIVE is the fruit of 2o years personal research (and unsolicited healing) as an ensemble theatre artist turned solo movement artist…and person in this world with problems.
This work is arising now because we need as many people as possible to re-learn tools of navigation as we venture into the choppy waters of our lives, both individual and collective.
For me, the most powerful tools have been found in the work of embodied practices.
Creative, Storied, Sensory.
EMBODIED ARCHIVE offers workshops and one-on-one movement guidance as an important aspect of building a more just and sustainable world.
EMBODIED ARCHIVE offers work in solo or in small groups, inciting personal shifts in our perception of ourselves, others and society.
Together, we unravel what’s not working.
We lean into the wellspring of knowing that is inherent to our individual bodies. We tap into the pulse of truth that is at the core of our thrive-al in the collective body.
