Hi Marlon,

Enjoying everything, especially Minded Motion, so thank you!!

The screendance festival I direct has just opened its submission call. To share that here, is the best place to post it in Events?

Thank you!

Thanks for setting up a great forum Marlon!

I would like to hear more from Corinne about how visual familiarity can be used to bootstrap embodied responses to different dance styles/techniques.

I would also like to know more about teaching/developing Underscore and contact-improvisational dance.

Can anyone direct me to online or print resources to help get started thinking about these things?
