The Tamalpa Life/Art Process introduces an approach that enlivens dialogue between body and imagination, between life experiences and art making. Using movement, drawing, poetic writing, and improvisational performance, participants will tap into art's symbolic language to explore current life themes and generate new resources.
This class is designed for everyone. No previous experience in dance/art needed. Wear comfortable fitness attire, bare foot. Long hair worn up.

Tamalpa Life/Art Process
Statement by Tamalpa Co-Founder Daria Halprin
There is an essential connection between art and life that can facilitate healing and change. We are interested in a new aesthetic that reflects the here and now of peoples’ authentic life experiences, rather than the beauty of a specific dance form or technique. For us, it is our real life experiences that feed our art, and our art that informs the real issues in our lives.
