Sacred Sundays "Wisteria" Film Fest with Judith Rose & Igor S.
Date: November 7, 2021-
Location: On line from New York - 7:30 pm EST

Sacred Sundays are live from our living room sessions that are free, informal, intimate and interactive sharings and are open to 25 or so participants who want to connect in this way.   Register for this Sunday by email to pres@sacreddanceguild.org with “Sacred Sunday with Judith & Igor” in the subject line.

Last year we started a monthly Film Fest gathering as part of our Sacred Sunday program on the first Sunday of each month.  This could be a full length performance, a collection of small video clips or just about anything that is related to “sacred dance” with the intention to join together in community to watch something and then have time to chat in small groups!    The Sacred Dance Guild is focusing on Dance as a “Healing” art during the month of November and we are delighted to have Judith Rose and Igor S. presenting their film “Wisteria – A Dance Requiem for our Time.” to start us off.

Birthed during the pandemic, “Wisteria” offers a rare, unsparing, and unspoken look at love and loss through the prism of one man and one woman in an unspecified relationship.  Using dance as its medium, the particular is made universal, and the time-bound, timeless.  We will watch this 7 minute film together after which Judith and Igor will lead us through learning one of the choreographic sequences from the piece so we each can embody the experience personally in a collective community.   We will then open the floor for a dancing dialogue where we can share our responses, ideas, thoughts and questions.

Judith Rose, the founder of Vital MovementTM, has an extensive background in a variety of movement arts and modalities that include specialized training in Dance for Parkinson’s Disease and certification in the energy practice called Otiyot Hayyot. Her private practice in therapeutic wellness work is located in Nyack, NY.  Judith’s classes and workshops are dedicated towards guiding others towards the richest development of their potential as they stretch toward the sacred. Her work is deeply grounded in the belief that the arts provide a medium for personal and communal healing and transformation.

Igor S, the director of NY DanceSport, is a former competitive champion dancer, an award-winning performer and choreographer. He brings a determined, but joyful and encouraging energy to all his clients and classes. He offers movement instruction to individuals challenged with emotional and developmental disabilities and produces showcase fundraisers for local charitable institutions. 

The Sacred Dance Guild is blessed to have Judith and Igor gifting their presence with us leading this Sacred Sunday session. During this time when our lives have changed in ways we couldn’t have imagined, continuing our personal, collective and global mind/body/spirit connection is so important. We are grateful for those who lead us on these journeys of discovery as we dance on waves of grace together. We will be using ZOOM for Sunday’s sessions.
