Through My Flesh I See - A Body-Chanting Workshop with Judith Rose
Date: March 6, 2016-
Location: Union Arts Center, Sparkhill, New York
The body is a continual source of wonder and mystery. Walt Whitman described it as “electric”. Martha Graham referred to it as the “sacred garment”, while B.K.S. Iyengar named it “a temple”. Leonardo Da Vinci saw it as “a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.”
In this workshop, we will deepen our reverence for the body through chant, textual inquiry, and movement. Our focus text will be taken from the Book of Job 19:26, “Through my flesh I see the Divine”. Using both the practice of Vital Movement™ and the lyrical Hebrew movement art of Otiyot Hayyot, we will weave our way towards gratitude, wonder, and awe.
