Moving Ground

Bring life and art to your event. Moving Ground is a living art installation that can be tailored to the needs of your event. Performers elevate the ambiance as they present a moving sculpture. It can be a 1-6 hour installation.

 

This dance can be done as a personal meditation practice, as a group workshop and as a performance art installation. Contact Jill for rates and availability. 

 

When Jill was living and dancing in NYC she was introduced to a variation of Butoh, a dance form which originated in Japan, by Cilla Vee Life Arts.  Jill performed with Cilla Vee for many years doing a very slow moving but extremely expressive dance (it may take 20 min. to walk across the space). Jill says  “It was art, but it had me meditating before I knew what meditation was.” During a Koan Meditation session, Jill’s impulse to “dance the koan” was so strong that she started experimenting with moving very slowly, resting her mind and letting the koan direct her movement. Moving Ground came into being.
