Sarah Muehlbauer (ACG ’18) is the 2019 Leeway x Icebox Project Space Artist-in-Residence. As part of her residency she is offering a performance and worskshop.
Body Maps: is a workshop that creates meaningful connections between self and environment through an imaginative movement process. With the map as a metaphor for both inner and outter worlds, we practice how to draw from our experience to create the images we desire. Directly following Body Maps, guest instructor Elliot Polinsky will lead a meditative practice of Yoga Nidra, or “sleep yoga”. This sequenced visualization brings about deep relaxation and assists in uncovering and releasing habitual patterns of body and mind.”
In the beginning, maps were nothing more than theories, plans to journey to bring back data, rough pictures that helped explorers travel further into the unknown. Now that we’ve traversed our planet outwardly, we set forth to journey in. We can spend our whole lives getting to know the maps of our bodies, their patterns, preferences, joys, obstacles, and hidden history. The way we frame this journey has everything to do with where we end up. So let’s create maps of our bodies…. separately, but together.
Followed by Yoga Nidra at 3:15PM
