NataDas Full Moon Live Music Ecstatic Dance
NataDas (Servant of Dance) Live Music Ecstatic Dance -
This is our one event for April 2017.
Please join us for the full moon of April for the next community ecstatic dance. For this dance gathering the music is co-created by the dancers and a set of live musicians. The musicians are observing the gross movements of the dancers on the floor and simultaneously creating a live improvisational dance track. When these tracks are played together they loosely resemble the 5 Rhythms format, a dance form created by Ms. Gabriel Roth.
This is not a performance as much as it is a community gathering. The musician and dancer can get pretty far into ecstasy by creating in their own respective domain. When these two practices come together each person can go farther in the group then they can solo. That is precisely what NataDas (Servant of Dance) holds space for. Our intention is to co-create a live music dance space that is very strong and very safe. We do this so that everybody can come together and get down in a good and real way. We do this to create and heal our community on the ground here in Asheville and around the world.
