May-July, 2013 at Arts@Renaissance (Greenpoint, Brooklyn)

Two venerable DIY dance forces join powers to create Time Share, a pop-up venue linking artistic process and community.  The temporary performance and research hub, located in the repurposed garden level of an old hospital on the Williamsburg/Greenpoint border (St. Nick’s Alliance/Arts@Renassaince), will host a variety of low-cost movement classes, performances, lectures, and community dinners.  The space will also feature a permanent “free boutique” that functions as a depot for non-monetary exchange of clothing and recycled materials.  Taking advantage of each organization’s ability to shape-shift and respond to the needs of its community, AUNTS & CLASSCLASSCLASS will not attempt to replicate this structure in the future.  Time Share is a three-month experiment that says, “this isn’t a hole, we made it.”

CLASSES: Classes will include improvisation, voice & movement, non-gender ballet, spontaneous choreography, sensory experience, feldenkrais method, meditation, performative practices and bodywork.  Teachers: Hadar Ahuvia, Maximilian Balduzzi, Maggie Bennett, Lorene Bouboushian, Ethan Cowan, Carly Czach, Liliana Dirks-Goodman, Melanie Maar, Juliana May, Steve May, Rebeca Medina, niall noel, Sari Nordman, Marissa Perel, Katy Pyle, Jen Rosenblit, Michele Torino, and Larissa Velez-Jackson.

 Daily Monday-Friday from 10am-12pm & 12:30-2:30pm; May 20-June 28; classes $8

DINNER & DISCUSSION: Monthly panel discussions organized by writers Buck Wanner, Siobhan Burke, and Tara Willis followed by community dinners: guest chefs design a template, community fills in with side dishes.

Wednesdays, May 15th, June 12th & July 17th from 6-8pm (Panel) 8pm (Dinner)
