Join choreographer and artist-in-residence Daniel Burkholder for an experiential workshop exploring the grounds of the Lynden Sculpture Garden through practices of presence.

From September 2020 through May 2021 Burkholder was on site weekly (1-2+ hours) using various mindfulness and movement exercises to create On-Site: Lynden, a dance-on-video. In this workshop, Burkholder will lead a walk around the grounds, giving participants an opportunity to explore some of these practices themselves. These simple mindfulness exercises focus on developing a greater connection to place, as well as cultivating ease of mind and body. Different exercises will be shared in each of the two workshops; feel free to sign up for either one or for both. Dress comfortably for moving outdoors.
