Join Making Room Community Arts this week for One Small Gesture: A Three Day Pop-Up Ceremony.
Throughout the fall, members of Making Room and PARC have been experimenting with gestures and translation across artforms as a way of thinking about our personal and collective rhythms. On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, these different approaches and ideas will culminate in One Small Gesture. We will be inhabiting the Healing Room, and other parts of PARC, with an evolving and living installation composed of intentional gestures from dozens of groups and individuals at PARC and Edmond Place.
One Small Gesture will kick off during the Wednesday Jam, which starts at 10am. At 12:45pm, a special, shadowy production will kick off a procession up to the transformed healing room, where we’ll share in art and music making ranging from the quiet and individual to the collaborative and elaborate.
On Thursday, we’ll enjoy a special workshop from the mindfulness group and a zentangle workshop led by Alice Rogers, followed by a special ceremony and installation from residents at Edmond Place.
On Friday, we’ll be making more gestures to add to the space in the drop-in, while yoga happens in the Healing Room. Following a special writing group session at 4pm, at 5:30pm we’ll have a light dinner and a closing ceremony, including special appearances by the Making Room Choir and the Oracle. Guests and visitors are welcome to join for all events, but are especially encouraged to come for this final gesture.
Throughout the three days, we will be adding and subtracting to the Healing Room, leaving room for quiet and relaxation as well as spontaneity and adventure— join us for both each afternoon December 10, 11, and 12!
