Into Sunlight, a film by Moving Pictures, will receive a special showing during Immersion 2017. The film tells the story of choreographer and Continuum teacher Robin Becker’s dance, inspired from David Mariniss’ book, They Marched Into Sunlight, about the Vietnam era. The film perfectly exemplifies inhabiting the body, moving the world.
Are you curious about this summer’s Somatic Immersion? Read on to find out what’s happening “behind the scenes” in this 5-day exploration of Continuum’s contribution to the body of somatic knowing as it plays out through our personal and collective lives.
It’s more than serendipitous that Omega and Watermark Arts are bringing forth this workshop together. Nested in the landscape of the Hudson Valley, every aspect of the Omega site has been developed in consonance with the natural environment. We will have five days to dissolve into Continuum practice, nature and art, while being met with great hospitality. There is a range of accommodations for every taste and budget. This year Omega is also welcoming a new chef, who focuses on delicious, quality, locally-sourced food. Please join us!
