Open House: Institute for Somatics and Social Justice
Saturday September 16 11am-2pm
Featuring mini classes in Somatics, Yoga, and Theatre of the oppresed with Nicole Bindler, Fatima Adamu and Morgan Andrews!
Join us to learn more about the Institute for Somatics and Social Justice, beginning summer 2018 (applications are due November 1, 2017.) Hear and ask about the Institute's mission, program and curricular overview, and amazing faculty.
The Institute for Somatics and Social Justice is a container for rigorous, joyful, embodied research with an anti-racist/anti-oppression framework, oriented toward developing knowledge and discourse about the intersections of political movements and the body. Through the study and practice of embodied anatomy, developmental movement, and other methods, faculty and students seek to honor the lineage and further develop the Somatics field so that it may expand and become more inclusive, accessible, and relevant to communities that have not historically been invited to contribute to or participate in the work.
Directed by Nicole Bindler and based at The Whole Shebang in South Philadelphia, the Institute serves as a site for a 500-hour training in Somatic Movement Education that spans two summers (2018/19). Graduates receive a certificate in Somatic Movement Education. The Institute is also a meeting place for practitioners of various embodiment disciplines to share research, build relationships, deepen analysis, and learn from one another.
Join us on September 16 to learn more about the mission, curricular overview, and the faculty of the Institute and to ask any questions you may have!
