I am so excited to share this event!
Witchdancing for Beltane
Sunday, 2 May 2021, 5pm eastern
Facilitated by Michael J. Morris
Original soundscore by Moxy Martinez
In honor of Beltane, in celebration of the abundant life of springtime and the fires of the lengthening days, we will gather together in an hour-long movement ritual practice called Witchdancing. We had an amazing time gathering for this practice back in February, and I’m really excited to share it again with people in alignment with one of my favorite sabbats of the year. This practice asks: what if a dance is also a spell with which we conjure our bodies and the worlds in which they live? In Witchdancing, we move through a continuous series of images, qualities, and states, engaging in a metamorphosis of the body. The movement is improvisational and requires no previous dance experience. This practice emerges from nearly 20 years of experience in both witchcraft and Butoh—a Japanese postmodern dance form—and it is inspired by the work of Alkistis Dimech, Tatsumi Hijikata, Kazuo Ohno, Anna Halprin, and Keith Hennessy.
Donation-based movement ritual practice
As a participant in reparative justice, this event is free to all Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. I ask that all others donate to support the event, with a suggested scale of $20-30.
