Through art and dance we reclaim our primal heritage and move towards a more embodied future. – Anna Halprin
In each one of us lives a story, a palette of images and experiences stored in our muscles, organs, and bones. Away from the distractions of daily life, this workshop offers time to feel and listen deeply to the powerful intelligence of the body, to play and express with imagination through the arts, and to create personal and collective dances.
This is a special workshop with Anna, now in her 98th year, at the historic Mountain Home Studio designed for her by her husband, famed architect, Lawrence Halprin. Mountain Home Studio is set amidst redwood and oak trees on the flanks of Mount Tamalpais in Kentfield, California. It is a short drive to San Francisco, Berkeley, and the Sonoma and Napa wine countries.
This workshop is designed for everyone. No previous experience in dance/art needed.
Art materials supplied.
Accommodations list provided.
