Maanoo (Let it Happen)
Instructor: Hilary Wear
Style of Class: Drama/Clown
In this workshop, entitled "Maanoo (Let it Happen)," participants will be lead through a series of playful explorations in cooperative and drama-clown games. Creativity is supported through improvisations, encouraging self- and group-reliance. Hilary Wear is - among other things - a performer, community volunteer, and facilitator of culture-grounded cooperative inter-generational games-playing and drama groups. Most recently she has been developing and touring a Clown character, "Tootah," who picks up trash, kindly interacts, and longs to know what those bineshiinyag (birds) are saying.

Relax on Saturday evening with Bill James' introduction to "Muscle/Bone–Mind/Body," a hybrid dance/yoga class that combines the improvisational and active elements of dance with the rhythmic flow of yoga and stretching in a way which is certain to get everyone moving and relaxed. The workshop is comprised of three periods: the first moves bodies across the space in cycles of rhythmic, percussive movements; the second engages the imagination as the class flows through cycles of improvisation and mindful walking; and the third finishes the session with yoga-based stretches and breathing movements.
Continue with Bill’s regular "Muscle/Bone–Mind/Body" classes at Seeds of Change in the Fall.
