Presented by Suzanne Ecker, B.C.-D.M.T., M.F.T.
Dance ritual has served a pivotal role in human history, providing culture groups and their members a rich means to revivify core values and confront the uncertainties of an overwhelming and ever-changing world. In this presentation, I will share footage of traditional dances placing participants in ritual peril as a means to enlarge the psychic capacity of participants and revitalize the shared meanings and resources of their group. We will then look to modern dance works in which these same purposes may be reemerging. Specifically, we will explore the element of danger in the phenomenon of site-specific dance and movement forms which may be serving to confront collective risk-aversion with the necessity of uncertainty to true aliveness.
Suzanne Ecker, B.C.-D.M.T., M.F.T., is a dance/movement therapist and Jungian analyst practicing in West Los Angeles. She has supervised and taught in the fields of movement therapy and depth psychology for many years.
