Cultivating Creativity: Mindfulness, Movement and Art
This course is not yet available for enrollment.
This is a Mindfulness-Based Expressive Arts course that seeks to inspire, provoke, and awaken your individual and collective creativity towards the development of original performance art-works. These will be researched in daily physical practices including somatic sensory work, yoga, Butoh Physical Theatre, Contact Improvisation, Contemporary and Vernacular Dance, Authentic Movement, Rasa, and Loving Kindness Mediations. Students will participate in site-specific rituals at Providence Waterfire, writing scores, painting and designing spaces, and work in various visual, inter-medial and musical art forms. Field trips will help facilitate the application and integration of our contemplative and creative community engagement.
