This is Claire, I'm the Ballet teacher at Weaverville Yoga, so those who know me from there will probably be familiar with my work at the ballet barre.
BUT on May 14 & 15 I will be doing something very different at the studio...
I will be presenting my final MFA project in PERFORMANCE. This includes a dance performance, a workshop, a video screening & an installation.
Please read on ....
RAW-(Material) at Weaverville Yoga
“The raw material of the performing artist is the Self
… as Living Art”
For the past two years I have been working on an MFA degree in Creative Practice. My course of study has been to create a pedagogy – a teaching method for performance art that provides a solid structure while allowing individual discovery and invention.
I have also applied this method on myself and become my own student!
The RAW-(Material) series is a year-long project in which I explore the raw material of the Self and the raw materials of nature as mediums for art. This process has been documented in the form of a multi-media art journal.
I am so pleased to be able to present my final project at Weaverville Yoga and to share this work with such a supportive community.
There are four different facets of the project. I hope you will join me for one or all of them.
Namaste and thank you!
