***On Sight Ecstatic Dance Organizers***
Roman Borochin and Janie Crick
Introduction to Contact Improv Dance with Eve Chalom.
Contact improvisation can be a mind blowing experience and help you to see yourself and the whole world differently. As a shared movement practice, there is a strong emphasis on listening, both to your internal experience and to what is going on around you with your dance partners and the rest of the space. Eve Chalom credits contact improvisation with teaching her how to be free, and how to improvise through life. She is also an ice skating teacher and performer, a modern dance performer, a registered dance movement therapist, and a yoga instructor.
Pumping up the Tribal Beats and taking us on an dance journey through rhythm is Windwalker, aka Dj Prajna.
Dancer, percussionist, and Dj he has performed at both acoustic and electronic venues for over 15 years. His roots lay deep in Latin, Indian and Asian traditional and influenced music and rhythms. His DJ sets take you on a global journey both cathartic and deep. Be prepared to explore cutting-edge world, tribal, shamanic and innovative electronica that will expand your heart and move deep in your soul.
***Dj and Drums Activation***
Roman, or Galactatron for the night, is a collector of music that sets the dance floor on fire and inspires the rhythm of the Galactic Heart Beat. Expect deep House Music bass lines to seduce dancers and drummers alike, with slow transcendent melodies to wind us down at the end of the night. You are invited to get close and let the music wash over you as every cell in your body becomes ecstatic in our New Year.
Our core drummers set to dance us into the New Year are the incredible Brian Androw, the deeply present Przemek Łukacz, and the golden hearted Mikaylo Kelly.
These rhythm devils are astute in the part of playing and listening. The experience that they invite is that of a deep cohesion felt in the most subtle levels of experience.
***Sound Journey into the beyond***
Taking us deep into relaxation and integration are the buttery and silky musical stylings of Thistle Bear of Medicine Bear & The Herbal Remedies.
Singing to inspire love, revolution, and the aspiration to a higher human potential, Thistle Bear weaves their melodies in Chicago and all over the world. They joyfully infuses their song with magic and the poetry of star stuff… It’s a whole thing that must be experienced.
