inspiration dances in word and movement

Moving Words

An InterPlay Poetry Playshop
Joy Anna Hodges and Terry McCarthy

Asheville, NC

Saturday March 31, 1:00-5:00 pm

Come and play with the dance between movement and words! Indulge in an affirming, creative process to access your body’s wisdom, information, and inspiration. We will use the simple, accessible forms of Interplay alongside free-writing to invite words and poetry /word play in an embodied way. We will move, write, share and savor our creations in the moment. No Interplay or writing experience needed, just a willingness to play.

Also this weekend: Performance Jam 7:00-9:00 in the evening; ...and a Body Spirit Celebration Sunday April 1, 3:00-5:00 pm. All events at same location. See events pages for details.

Cost: $35-60 sliding scale (self-determined)
