“Spanda” - a vibration - is symbolic of the enduring and perpetual energy that is the life force of the universe. It incorporates the philosophical concept of “Prithvi” - Mother Earth - as the center and source of energy in the universe, and equates it with the “nabham” - the womb - as the origin of energy in the human body. It is a journey inwards seeking the essential “center”, the origin of movement and its source of strength.

Women of Substance
Sun, Apr 21, 7:00 pm
Created and performed by Emily Johnson with Aretha Aoki, James Everest, Bethany Lacktorin, and Heidi Eckwall
Originally from Alaska and currently based in Minneapolis, director/choreographer/curator Emily Johnson’s Niicugni is second in a trilogy of work. Niicugni ― the word ― is a directive to pay attention, to listen. Niicugni the dance quietly compels such attentiveness through its layering of multiple dances, live music, stories, and histories. Housed within a light/sound installation of hand-made, functional fish-skin lanterns, Niicugni asks ― can we pay attention to the ways we do and do not listen to our bodies, histories, impulses and environments? Equating the molecules of land with the cells that comprise our bodies, Niicugni is also about how land, or place, like our bodies is a repository of past, present, and future.
*Please note: The artist has requested that there be no late seating for this performance. We will not be able to seat you if you arrive after 7:00 p.m.
Come early to experience the lobby exhibit with photos, video, and more.
Connect with Emily Johnson for a Q & A immediately following the performance from the stage.

Subbody Butoh Method was developed by Rhizome Lee, a Japanese Butoh practitioner. “Subbody” means subconscious body. In the subconscious realm, away from the boundary of ego and daily consciousness, our mind and body melt into oneness and create world that is completely different from the daily world. Through various conditioning techniques, a Subbody Butoh practitioner creates movements through exploring the subconscious realm.
Subbody Resonance Butoh Workshop is designed as a pre-requisite for Subbody Butoh Workshop in order to learn the basic conditioning methods and approach of Subbody Butoh Method. The essence of Subbody Method is “Resonance.” As Taoist master Lao-tzu said “Tao can be told is not an eternal Tao,” Resonance is also indescribable. It can only be felt and experienced. Come and experience the power of Resonance!
Subbody Butoh Workshop is a group process and this workshop requires no previous dance experience. Anyone who would like to explore his or her hidden creative potentials is welcome!

Physical Perspectives - May 16, 21, 30 – 9:30-11am
Physical Perspectives is a contemporary dance class created in Company Stefanie Batten Bland's own technique style of perpetual movement making. Dancers are invited to examine technical proficiency through risk-taking and empower their instinct with focus on initiation to completion. The class offers a physical investigation of the intuitive physical self, the practice of hearing and doing in the now, physical weight design, the connection to the breath body, rhythmical dynamics, and examining neutral through counter balance resolutions. The subtle changes that the body encounters from this evolving class canvas will offer dancers new perspectives in their different states of being and moving.
Stefanie Batten Bland (Choreographer) has danced for Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Pal Frenak, Georges Momboye, Pina Bausch Tanz Theater Wuppertal, Lar Lubovitch, Julie Taymor and Angelin Preljocaj. Stefanie’s choreographic vision has been recognized as a 2010-12 Baryshnikov Arts Center Artist in Residence, Jerome Robbins NEW Fellow and 2011/12 Cambridge Who’s Who! of Professionals and Entrepreneurs.

The book Margret Dietz - A Dancer's Legacy is still available at $30.00 for dancers interested in German Expressionist modern dance. Margret Dietz taught in Minnesota in the early 1970s, at the U-MN, The Hauser School and founded Choreogram Dance Company and School. This memoir chronicles Ms. Dietz's life in Europe as a student and friend of Mary Wigman during WWII. Written by Freeman, Nickell and Soderstrom in 2010, it follows her story from Germany to America in 1953 and through her career as educator, choreographer, and exemplar of the Mary Wigman School in America. She passed away in 1972 and was lovingly buried at The College of Saint Benedict where her Centenary will be celebrated on June 14th and 15t, 2013. Archives will be dedicated, a Master Class taught by Thern Anderson with an informal performance by Dietzchkins and Friends. Exhibits will include Charlotte Rudolph photography from the 1930s - which is also featured in the memoir from Margret's portfolio. This Day of Remembrance and Tribute to Margret Dietz has grown from the research and scholarship in the book, and dance writers will have a sense of continuity from dance as history, telling our own stories and on into a permanent archival setting. FFI: Lindalee Soderstrom email@example.com. Books can be hand-delivered to you or purchased at the Centennial Gathering.
