Chani Bockwinkel returns to The Living Room to share "Sappho & Sweat"
Chani Bockwinkel returns to Maine as an Artist in Residence at SPACE Gallery, to work her film project "Those Who Wait," and to teach "Sappho & Sweat" at Moving Target Portland. Below is her description for class which runs from 1-3pm Sunday Oct 1.
A place for us to get sweaty, learn some 80's sci fi dance moves, give attention to our pelvis and the magik that is our anatomy. Read a little sapphic poetry, do a few lunges, honor some deep femme idols, and dance WITH each other.
Folks of all gender identies are very invited to come dance.
Outlandish outfits also welcome.
no dance experience needed
