Bach in Your Body



BOMBYX Center for Arts & Equity (130 Pine Street, Florence MA)

Born from the desire to weave improvisational movement with classical music, Bach In Your Body is an invitation into deep somatic listening. This workshop and performance is for anyone who is curious to experience classical music in a framework beyond the traditional concert.

Beginning with a guided warm-up, we will explore different aspects of the musical landscape as it relates to our embodied experience. As we workshop the process of listening with the body, we practice allowing ourselves to be moved. Following this introduction, Charlotte will perform several unaccompanied works for violin and viola by J. S. Bach. This music was originally written for dancing, and you may be compelled to dance – or perhaps you prefer to lie down, meditate, or simply observe. This is an open space for you to be present in any way that you choose. You will leave with a deeper connection to yourself and to the magnificent music of Bach.
