Every Body, a dance performance in experiential anatomy: We all possess a body but for most of us it is not so often that we think about the contents, structure, function, or anatomy of this body (not at least, until something goes wrong or something stops functioning properly…we are not going to go there.) In this performance we bring attention to the body each of us is inhabiting, and invite every body to tune in to the experience of their body. It is a performance of connecting anatomies expressed through dance, sound and words.
