Continuum is a direct experience inquiry into our unique movement expression and tissue orchestration. We use sound, breath and subtle movement to enliven the fluid intelligence of our body. The practice helps us to be responsive and adaptable in movement and thought; experiencing a greater flow of energy, increased tissue adaptability and generating multi-dimensional movement dynamics. What do we do? We will take some time to discuss our motif for the evening, followed by ample time (an hour-ish) for self-regulated movement exploration with music, and closing with a short and sweet sensation/experience naming circle. This time for slow inner somatic exploration is deeply nourishing for our tissues, our soul and the world. This practice is appropriate for all abilities and body types.

Program Shostakovich, Quartet No. 7 in F-sharp minor, Op. 108 Fauré, Piano Quartet in C minor, Op. 15 Ravel, Quartet in F major The American String Quartet has spent decades honing the luxurious sound for which it is famous. The Quartet will celebrate its 45th anniversary in 2019, and, in its years of touring, has performed in all fifty states and has appeared in the most important concert halls worldwide. The group’s presentations of the complete quartets of Beethoven, Schubert, Schoenberg, Bartok, and Mozart have won widespread critical acclaim, and their MusicMasters Complete Mozart String Quartets, performed on a matched quartet set of instruments by Stradivarius, are widely considered to have set the standard for this repertoire. Formed when its original members were students at The Juilliard School, the American String Quartet’s career began with the group winning both the Coleman Competition and the Naumburg Award in the same year.
