What is the Axis Syllabus?

The Axis Syllabus is a compendium of information from the study of anatomy, bio-mechanics, physics, and other related fields relevant to the moving body. In these dance classes we engage with anatomical clues in a quest to collaborate more deeply with the body's own inherited design. We seek to re-train movement patterns for respectful coherence and to grow our physical possibilities while learning and respecting our structural limitations.

Halloween Costume Sale with Innocence Project New Orleans

11:00am - 3:30pm

Join Innocence Project New Orleans for a pre-Halloween costume sale to get your look in line, all while supporting the emancipation of wrongfully incarcerated persons in Louisiana.

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

7:30pm - 9:00pm

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.

Living With The Undead: An Evening with Vinsantos DeFonte

doors 6:00pm, show at 7:00pm

Vinsantos celebrates 10 years of living and performing in New Orleans with his latest solo show "Living With The Undead". Using piano, vocals, storytelling and film, Vinsantos recounts his days on the road living on a bus and performing to sold out crowds with Peter Murphy on his 40 years of Bauhaus tour with David J. Vinsantos will also debut brand new material never played before human beings. This is a seated and highly intimate experience. The venue is all ages, but please use your discretion as this material is not suited for small children or adults with short attention spans. Consider this a night out at the theater, but in a grand church. Although Vinsantos identifies first and foremost as a Drag performer, this show will unfortunately not run on "Drag Time". (see above mentioned reference to a night out at the theater). Bring your tissues, but leave your issues at the door.

High Priestess Kook Teflon will lead an opening ceremony to enhance the voices of Grandmothers, Transmothers, and Fem'men.
