Spinal Instincts

- Monthly Community Dance Class -


October 5 | November 9 | December 7 | January 25 February 22 | March 21 | April 11

Our spine is the most central structure in the body; from here we move, think, feel and PLAY! These MVMNT PHLOSPHY sessions are designed for movers of all ages and experience levels to come together and reconnect with our instinctual abilities to respond and adapt with ease and levity. Through interactive partnering exercises, games, and personal exploration we will develop our physicality and strengthen our confidence inside our moving bodies. By the end of each class we will discover a deeper connection to ourselves, each other and the world around us.

Thursdays from 5:30-7:30PM

November 14 | November 21 | December 5 | December 12 | December 19

This workshop is for any kind of time-based performance : music, dance, theater, puppetry, spoken word. If you need a deadline to begin, deadlines to work up to a public performance, or are just tired of only hearing your own voice in the artistic process; this is it, this is for you.

Fieldwork is a place and time for performing artists to learn about their work, develop their ability to give feedback, and build a community of artistic peers. You will get responses to what you are making in a way that respects the intent of the work and allows you to discover your own solutions.

Gaga with Anna Long

Saturday, November 16 & 17 | 2 - 3pm

$16/ class and $12 for students with valid ID.
Cash, check, Venmo and Zelle accepted for payment.

Gaga offers a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations, experience physical sensations, improve their flexibility and stamina, exercise their agility and explosive power, and enjoy the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.

Throughout the class, participants are guided by a series of evocative instructions deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation. Rather than turning from one prompt to another, information is layered, building into a multisensory, physically challenging experience.

The Infinite Detail of This Place & Time

Sunday, November 24, 2019 at 7 PM – 8:30 PM

Join Virago and the A.W.E. Society for an evening of close listening and looking. Sonic improvisations will respond to immersive live video projections of the tiny-often unseen details of the world around us, and a contemplative audience participation session will bring together the concrete and the imagined realms. Banjo, the amateur therapy dog will be there for more than human comfort.

Warm beverages and beer/wine will be available with a suggested donation.

Sliding scale admission $5-10

Flower Creep Project/ Ongoing

- Community art project -

conceived by The Scraper 

Flower Creep is originally the ongoing invitation to draw flowers on the walls and floor of our Corner Studio by the local passers by, visitors, workers, travelers, etc that stop by our space. The concrete floor was  eventually covered by a wood sprung floor but the power of the action rests underneath. The action was originally conceived as a christening of the new art/performance space by the love of the community.  

Recently the invitation was extended locally to the fence of the Hope Village Farmers Market.

The Scraper is interested in changing perception of space by bringing people together trough art actions. She's planning on having her Grand Flower Project Finale in the spring of 2020.

The Scraper is also a founding member here at Andy.
