Performative Pop-ups bridges the gap between communities and spaces to transform the art landscape. Connecting artists to new audiences and collectors through events.
Have you noticed the curling of the Marah macrocarpa's (wild cucumber) vines? Twisting and turning across space to grow? Or the cycle of a California Buckwheat flower, from pink bud to rusty chaff? The expression of a plant's life is a constant dance with itself and the environment. Join dancer and choreographer Mia Orozco in the TPF gardens to deepen your relationship to California native plants through dance.
Everyone can learn through movement! This is a class for all ranges, no prior experience necessary. The goal is to practice and embody a language without words. This class will take place across various parts of the TPF gardens inspired by the plants, geography, wildlife and self-expression. Involving individual and group work, with time for reflection and sharing, we ask that students come ready to move and dance!
Please wear closed-toed shoes, bring water and dress for weather. This class involves moving on a steep, uneven path.
For children 12 years old and up.
"What is intimacy, but a feeling of closeness, trust, and care for the individual self within the confines of a relationship – any relationship? Often used in the context of romantic relationships, Performative Pop-Ups extends this feeling of closeness to its ….well….performative pop-ups. "
