Class Description

Using practiced skills as our tools, Stillness Studies training draws from the threads of accumulated life experience to bring to the surface valuable core movement and emotional content. Our goal to reach into the depths of our life experience and to find shining threads that connect ourselves to the world we live in. With these threads, we seek to excavate and discover new experiences of communicating that do not rely on words but rather on a more primal and instinctive form of understanding.

Our stillpoint movement approach focuses on creative, proactive human development within our present-day social context. There will be a continual focus on the pathways of transcribing and uniting outer and inner landscapes into physical expression.

All are welcome, regardless of experience.

About the Instructor

Anastazia Louise Aranaga, founder and artistic director of Bad Unkl Sista, brings her personally developed style to Stillness Studies classes.

Her stillpoint movement approach combines a lifetime of performance experience distilled from a vast array of teachers and collaborators. She was introduced to Butoh through Diego Pinon (Butoh Ritual Mexicano) in 2002, and his teachings remain an ongoing influence and inspiration for her performance work. Other primary influences include Hiroko and Koichi Tamano, Sankai Juku, Katsura Kan and Evangeline.
