The Toronto Dance Community Love-In hosts Shelley Etkin and Angela Schubot for a Workshop and Collective Practice Project: March-April, 2022

This workshop explores embodied ways to be with the knowledge and spiritual insights of plants and plant consciousness. It is a time of encounter with the multiplicity of non-human forces in us, more than us, and beyond us and dedicating to our ongoing mutual relationships with them.

Our practices explore inner and outer dimensions of bodies and lands, inviting a place of connectivity and listening. How might we meet the entity of a plant as an ensemble, a symphony in our shared ecology? How can we enter co-creative processes with nature forces in visible and invisible realms, letting them speak through our bodies through dance, meditation, touch and incarnation? How will we stay in it, loving the unknown?
