North Adams, 6 p.m.
March 9 - 11 Over 16 hours of yoga, lecture, meditation, and discussion to deepen your yoga practice. This weekend is intended for you to fall in love with your practice all over again. As practicing yogis we find walls, plateaus, dark spaces that we didn't think were there when we first go that 'yoga high' after our first class. We will use different practices including yoga nidra, meditation, flow yoga, and even strength training to change our relationship with fear and these blocks. The end of winter can feel monotonous and like there's not enough light, but it's a great time to shift and prepare, and remember the light that is always within. We hope you will join us. Space is limited. Read the details on our website.

Williamstown, 7:30 p.m.
Come see a play about a family Who argued back and forth like you and me They had a guest who they could not abide Who tried seducing mom and stole and lied He stopped all their fun and told them not to rest He simply would not leave, this pesky guest. Papa was taken in—as Papas always are— Not so the kids, although their Grandmama Had been transfixed by Tartuffe’s lying ways And left and said she’d not return for days. They had a pretty smart and wily maid Who plotted to expose the cowardly…dade That didn’t rhyme I know, but I don’t care— Come see the show, it’s written by Molière! 62 Center

For reservations (required) contact Michele Rech at 413-597-2188 or by email. Others will be admitted as space permits. Large groups should call for special appointments.
Williams College Dance Department will host a symposium that approaches dance and performance as an interdisciplinary method, site of inquiry, and medium of learning. We will bring together scholars and practitioners who use a movement-based practice from Williams College and beyond to examine how embodied practices can provide insightful perspectives into issues relevant to the humanities and sciences. In framing dance/performance” broadly as both staged and everyday acts of representation, the engagement with disciplines as diverse as sports, martial arts, theatre, music, sciences, arts, and anthropology offer a lens for contextual analysis and techniques of bodily practice. It will also highlight the various ways that “dance/performance” can enable collaborations that may be thought of as non-traditional or non-normative. Keynote speaker Janet O’Shea is Professor of Dance Studies in the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance at UCLA. She is the author At Home in the World: Bharata Natyam on the Global Stage and co-editor of the Routledge Dance Studies Reader (second edition). Her current research is about Filipino martial arts and cognitive benefits of embodied training. Dr. O’Shea is completing an ethnographic memoir entitled Risk, Failure, Play: What Martial Arts Training Reveals about Proficiency, Competition, and Cooperation. 62 Center
