Cocréa = Collaborative, Organic Communication, Revolutionizing Embodied Awareness.Building on the foundational elements of social partner dance technique as our common language, Wren LaFeet’s playful guidance teaches how to wield creative expression with consideration to another body and practice nuanced responsiveness to one another in improvisational, co-created dance. Cocréa is a gateway to accessing the body’s wisdom to deepening Self and relational attunement. Our intention is to explore form and play creatively from our heart, body and spirit, in full support and appreciation of ourselves and one another.
This workshop is accessible to movers of all experience levels.Whether you’re completely new to partner dance, have been dancing fusion for awhile, or have a completely different embodiment practice, this workshop is an opportunity to support you in taking your dance experience to a new level!
A dancer in the Fusion social partner dance movement since it began in the early 2000s, Wren’s dancing helps define Fusion as an emergent dance form based in the spontaneous co-creation of new aesthetics. Fueled by his curiosity in spirituality, sexuality, global community, the natural world, relationships, and guided by his devotion to love and the idea of the Beloved, partner dance has served as the vehicle for his inquiry and understanding. He has inspired the formation of multiple fusion dance communities on the west coast of North America, and teaches partner dance internationally as a practice for mindful, authentic living, enlivening communities with his signature modality, Cocréa. His facilitation encourages individuals to create themselves as safer spaces for the embodiment of the full range of human expression. Promoting dance as medicine– a spiritual salve for our modern ailments of disconnection and alienation– his practice insists we trust our bodies with the music and our partner to catalyze elevating our whole being into higher vibrational states.
While Entheo’s music crosses and blends several genres, the intention behind of all his creative work is to catalyze alchemy, awakening and transformation. For this special Commun-yum set, he’ll be stewarding a tender and luscious heart-opening vibe into the space, inviting our deep presence into the delicious and ecstasy of being One in a body, together, moving in tune with the harmony and rhythm of life. To close and integrate, we will effortlessly transition to just guitar and voice. Singing together in the joy, play and vulnerability of improvisational song.
