Almanac Seasonal Improvisation Series

with Nina Haft

Mondays, January 11, 18, 25
$0-60 sliding scale
In this 3-part Almanac Seasonal Improvisation Series, we will tune into our physical bodies as fields of nature, sensation and movement. Each session will include consulting the Farmers' Almanac (among other technologies) to find nourishing connections to the environment, and is designed with specifics of the day and your location. Add new scores to your repertoire for creative and physical nourishment, as we explore how to grow a seasonally-rooted movement practice for these times.


Nina Otis Haft is Artistic Director of Nina Haft & Company, a Bay Area-based contemporary dance ensemble known for site-specific work and immersive theatrical performances. Her recent work has explored the body as a field of nature and knowing, including debris/flows, King Tide and Precarious Pod. NHCo is also known for Dance in Unexpected Places, performing in dockyards, synagogues, bars, parking lots, libraries, cemeteries and other liminal spaces. NHCo has been presented in Boston, LA, Madison, NYC, Portland, San Diego, Novosibirsk, Amman, Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Ramallah.
