As part of a two-week D+R Residency, Anna Luisa Petrisko (Jeepneys) offers a free sound and self-care experience—somewhere between an atmospheric movement class, guided meditation, and artistic process. Led by Petrisko, this exploratory workshop features live ambient music performed by Adee Roberson, and culminates in a sound-bath generated by both artists that invokes healing extraterrestrial soundscapes. Healing Space stages an exploratory encounter with concepts and practices for Jeepneys upcoming experimental sci-fi opera, which imagines an intentionally suspended, spaceship-dwelling community that travels outside of a dystopic world to create healing rituals.
All are welcome. Movement is minimal and adaptable for different bodies and needs. No experience necessary.
FREE, or contribute in support of the program. Reservations recommended.
WHAT TO WEAR / BRING
Although your mind and spirit may be space traveling, your body will be very much on Earth, so note that Automata has concrete floors. Much of the workshop is conducted lying or seated, so wear comfortable, layered clothing, and bring any comforts you desire—mat, blanket, towel, socks, eye pillow, etc. Meditative tools such as crystals or amulets, are optional, but welcome! Please refrain from wearing perfumes or heavy scents.
This D+R Residency event is collaboratively offered by Los Angeles Performance Practice and Automata, with support from the California Art Council’s Creative California Communities program.
