Revival 6 Performance and Workshop

DANCES FOR A VARIABLE POPULATION PRESENTS REVIVAL 6 Home/Body/Care A Live Performance Festival in September 2022: A EXPLORATION OF AMERICAN HEALTHCARE AND OPPORTUNITY THROUGH THE LENS OF 20 TH CENTURY DANCE!

Celebrating the joy of age in response to innovative ways lessons learned from COVID-19 and how to take care of one’s health, Dances For A Variable Population (DVP) will present, REVIVAL 6 Home/Body/Care, featuring 6 seasoned dance artists and 50 non-professional senior dancers, who reflect the innovation and beauty of older age. Home/Body/Care will be an exploration of self advocacy in American healthcare, strategies for maintaining good health, managing the affordability of healthcare, and how movement, diet, holistic approaches and spiritual practices have made a difference in people’s lives as they age. Through their experience and example of shared vitality and a spirit of unity, we are reminded of the importance of community and connection in spite of the difficulties of these times with healthcare. Revisioning healthcare facilities as places of healing and action, involve senior citizens as knowledge-centers and creators, and the public in dances that showcase seniors as architects of their health. REVIVAL 6 Home/Body/Care connects a multi-generational dance company with choreographers in their 60s, 70s, and 80s through live performances. Now, as part of DVP’s 12th year of free performances in iconic spaces, the performances and workshops of REVIVAL 6 Home/Body/Care will take place Saturday, Sept 10 at Washington Square Park in Garibaldi Plaza at 6 PM and Saturday, September 24 at Yolanda Garcia Park at 4 PM with preshow workshops of interactive “All Together Dance” open to the public.

This one-of-a-kind event will be free to the public. Covid restrictions will allow socially distant seating for audience members, at the performances featuring the guest artists and DVP teaching artists. Reservations are recommended. The event will provide diverse audiences an opportunity to see movement distilled from the seminal techniques of legendary geniuses, to see the eloquence of the older brain/older body and witness the intergenerational connection in the spirit of creation and collaboration. Performances will also include daily interactive free open- access workshops for adults of all ages and abilities. Through these workshops, audiences including adults of all ages and abilities, will dance in ways that are new to them, be stretched physically and intellectually, and gain new experiences of personal mastery.
