The Dangerous Dance of Renewal-CANCELLED
April 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmPrepaid Cost: $30 – $35
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 ever-changing world. Footage of traditional dance films which place participants in ritual peril will be used to illustrate how dance ritual is utilized to both enlarge the psychic capacity of participants as well as revitalize the shared meanings and resources of their group. We will use examples of modern dance forms to explore how these same forms may be re-emerging, by focusing on the element of danger in site-specific works, a form which offers an opportunity to confront risk aversion with the necessity of uncertainty, an inherent aspect of 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.
