SECOND NATURE with K.J. Holmes
Wednesday, May 19th at 4-5:30pm
Nature, defined as "the phenomena of the physical world collectively, including plants, animals, the landscape, and other features and products of the earth, as opposed to humans or human creations : the physical force regarded as causing and regulating these phenomena : the innate or essential qualities or character of a person or animal.”
This class will be an invitation to enter human nature as second, placing the landscape, earth, first.
We will dance the phenomena and the essential resonances of water, land, sky, weather, atmosphere. Not opposed to but taking instructions from nature. No matter the weather, we will be there.
