Part 1 & 2 Price: $40 

Starving Artist Price: Two people, at the same location take the workshop(s) together for the price of one person. See directions below.

For this workshop we highly recommend having a partner or someone from the same household, with whom to communicate/move with. Most of the activities will explore contact without touch, but there will be physical interaction, so having someone there with you will be important. You will also each need ten small coins (pennies, dimes) and two larger coins (quarters, half dollars), which we advise to clean beforehand.

After checking in and taking care of ourselves, we begin to broaden our point of reference to include information given and received from a partner. We use a series of tools and games to help free the mind to be available to empathetically connect with a partner, but also to help understand how our bodies are sensitive instruments that can receive and render subtle information. “As with all truly wild things, care is necessary in approaching them. Stealth is useless. Wild things recognize stealth for what it is, a lie and a trap. While wild things might play games of stealth, and in doing so may even occasionally fall prey to stealth, they are never truly caught by it.” – from The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Like two positively charged magnets, we will discover how to charge the space between two separated bodies so as to move as one. The workshop is open level and is as important for the veteran as it is for a beginner. We both are practitioners of Vipassana meditation and much of our understanding of awareness of equanimity is infused into our class. Concurrently, this course is part of an ongoing study to seamlessly exchange/share leadership as equal partners while continuing to encourage and challenge one another.  

In this time of worldwide pandemic there are still ways to connect and move with others from a distance. Contact means more than simply physical touch. We can affect one another, for example, through sound vibration, through eye contact, through subtle body reading, through imagination. Our partnering class pulls from the idea of the ideomotor phenomenon that is considered an ‘invisible player’ and dives into how to train at the subconscious level, the level where we ‘do’ without thinking. In this partnering class we focus on sharpening hyper listening and empathic moving, we question what it means to join a movement journey and to explore manipulation through agreement. And we will do all this without physically touching. The workshop will be structured as two sessions.

I find it important to at least address the idea of observing the animal inside us that drives most of our decisions, to, at least, begin to understand how to be available to a partner and not to be distracted by the sensations that might come from moving with another person.

Eddie Bruno Oroyan

Eddie feels most at home in Hawaii, growing up half his youth in Waipahu and is delighted to have the chance to spend a bit of time on the island again!

After an injury in late 2014, Oroyan began a practice of meditation and observation. His performing and studies have long included animal reflex training and proper response, but his new practice has and continues to teach him curiosity and awareness of the more subtle and delicate, the empathetic. After returning to performing and teaching, Oroyan is moved to explore and share these discoveries through the stage and classroom.

Oroyan is in his sixth year with Ultima Vez, having toured and performed primarily with What the Body Does not Remember and, currently, in the production of In Spite of Wishing and Wanting. He has also been working with Emmanuel Gat Dance since 2017 on the projects TEN WORKS & and is currently working on the project STORY WATER, that will premiere in Avignon, France in July. His experience spans Creach/Company, Shapiro & Smith, ARENA Dances, Zenon, Andrea Miller, and Roberto Olivan. He was a founding mover and an Artistic Associate for company Black Label Movement and continues as an active choreographer. His most recent collaborations presented at American Dance Festival 2014 (with Carl Flink) and Zürich Tanzt 2015 (with Rakesh Sukesh). Eddie presented a solo in 2016 at P12 Space in Brussels and is currently developing a duet with Natalia Pieczuro and Jessica Eirado Enes.

We begin the workshop with a series of movement explorations to mindfully train the brain alongside the body, to develop our awareness and choice with an ‘as we are, not ‘as we want to be’ approach. Tools and guiding are offered throughout the class to enable subtle and gross awareness and develop presence. The goal is to observe and understand the animal inside, to recognize the direct weave of the mind and body, and to learn how mindful decision and wildness can coexist.
