All of which are trees
Sarah Baumert and Meg Rotzel draw upon their respective mediums of movement and visual art to create an installation and performance for the MEME Gallery. Starting with a wall drawing of a tree, Rotzel has created a simple installation of various forms of wood. Using a board, a group of blocks used to turn bowls, and a rough log, Rotzel tools the medium to correspond to various moments in a life. Baumert moves through these elements loosely connecting each object to images of growth, industry, loss, memorial and introspection.
Meg Rotzel is an artist who coordinates public projects and gives gifts. She was director and founder of the Berwick Research Institute, a Boston-based arts non-profit, where she established the Artist in Research residency program. Meg received her BFA from Tufts and the Museum School, her masters from Brown University, and produces artist projects for MIT’s Office of the Arts.
Sarah Baumert is a dancer, who since moving to Boston began to explore new roles for herself as performer and choreographer. Recently she has worked under Berlin based artist Xavier Le Roy, climbing walls for Trisha Brown at the Walker Art Center, and for local choreographer Sara Smith. Sarah teaches yoga inspired by Body Mind Centering and is fascinated by the way the body works.
In addition to the installation and performance Sarah Baumert will lead a workshop: Body Weathering, time and date to be determined
The body is the soil of our thoughts and imaginations. This workshop will devise the use of somatic explorations through the lens of Body-Mind Centering ® , improvisational dance tunings, and meditation practices to discover, enrich, and explore how we are landscapes for our ideas. The workshop will be supportive and challenging in order to embody our experiential knowledge with the uncertainty of what has yet to appear. We may spend time inside and outside. All are welcome, no prior dance experience required.
Somatic workshops led by Sarah Baumert Oct 21-31
