This week

Improvisation for Brave Hearts

5:30pm - 8:30pm

ErinBell leads a movement-based improvisation class designed for everyone who feels comfortable moving/moving with others, no special technique required. Occasionally there will be incorporation of voice/text. The work will be developed from a somatic base, to develop skills of sensing self/others. This class will help you improvise from your own deep-center-belly, and work will be developed from structured, goofy games. Attendees will investigate "bumpy flow" - how to stay and find curiosity-interest when the flow gets bumpy. For regular attendees we will work with an eye towards future performance. LGTBQI+ friendly space. All ages (16+) and mobilities welcome.

$7 per class, 1 in a series of 3.

September 4th, 11th, and 18th.

Breathwork with Wellspring New Orleans

4pm - 5:30pm

Join Kathleen Currie of Wellspring New Orleans for a breathwork class - a form of active meditation with roots in ancient Indian pranayama (the study of the breath). As the breather breathes using a 2 stage breath with the guidance of a teacher, the hypothalmus gland releases endorphins which can feel like a flood of energy, emotion, visions, and memories. By releasing these stuck energies, the nervous system is able to release and activate a self-healing process that has a ripple effect on the entire system! These sessions are active, and end with a deep rest with some hands on touch to facilitate release. You will feel lighter, more free, and deeply relaxed after. This modality is safe for anyone, and highly transformative.

Versipel New Music Concert

Versipel New Music is excited to welcome New York City-based guitarist Giacomo Baldelli to open our sixth season at Hotel Peter and Paul. Baldelli will perform a concert of modern music for electric guitar, including performances of works by some of today’s leading voices in contemporary music such as French composer Tristain Murail and U.S. composer Eve Beglerian.

Critically noted as “one of the most complete performers of the new generation”, Baldelli is focused on exploring works of the 20th century, but also on developing a new 21st century repertoire for guitar. Most recently, he has been interested in expanding the contemporary repertoire for electric guitar. His critically-acclaimed debut CD “Chitarra Italiana del XXI°Secolo” (Bottega Discantica- 2010) includes the first Italian Recording of the masterpiece for electric guitar “Trash TV Trance” by Fausto Romitelli. His new album “Electric Creatures” was released in Italy on November 30th, 2018 and in the US in Spring 2019.
