INVISIBLE: Movement workshops for women (over age 40)
with Paula Mann and Sandy Agustin

Tap into your unique physical instincts! Learn fun movement exercises from the new dance piece INVISIBLE! Our practice is to be present and grounded in our bodies. We will heighten physical sensation and expand awareness through specific creative movement exercises. We will discover the connection between emotion and movement and learn to release this energy, allowing emotions to move through us fueling our own unique creations.

Jump start your imagination! Experience with dance not necessary!
Space is limited: please email Paula at pmann102@gmail to reserve your space.

Matt Jenson presents
Sketch Mythology

Gods, goddesses, and fantastic creatures from Greek mythology abound in this performance that blends dance, theatre, and figure drawing. Choreographer, writer, and performer Matt Jenson will perform eight solos, each one as a different character from Greek mythology. After each solo, the house lights will come up and YOU get to sketch while Jenson poses as the character!

After the 70-minute performance, you will be able to do a more detailed drawing during a 25-minute pose. No previous drawing experience required, and paper and pencils will be provided. Visual artists are welcome to bring their own art supplies (pencils and pastels only, please).

Don’t remember much about the Minotaur? Never heard the story of Leda and the Swan? Who the heck is Ganymede? Don’t worry…we’ve got you covered! Before the performance, you can stroll through a gallery that introduces you to the eight characters in Sketch Mythology. A brief synopsis of each myth will tell you all you need to enjoy the show. The characters will also be depicted in drawings, paintings, or photographs created by eight Twin Cities visual artists.

This performance contains nudity. For audiences 18+

Trigger warning: Please note that, as with most Greek myths, the stories included in this show are full of potentially distressing elements such as: sexual situations, abduction, rape, castration, infertility, violence, death, and grief.
