Other Info: I'm doing this solo at home, not on Zoom because I am Zoomed out. There is a 5 mile limit on meeting one other household, outdoors only, in Wales, and there is no one that close to me to dance this with, so this is a solo Underscore. People are very welcome to tune in!
Other Info: The Underscore is a long form Contact Improvisation structure, authored by Nancy Stark Smith. We come together for the Global Underscore each year around summer solstice to practice simultaneously in many places on the globe, sharing the dance and bonding with the Earth we are all dancing with, and supported by.
The Global Underscore happens at 7am-11am Pacific time. Please be prepared to come for the whole time. This is important in setting the container.
This year's event is the first Global Underscore after Nancy joined the ancestors. We will have an altar space where you are welcome to bring objects, writings, flowers, pictures and candles.
The venue is an open, green public park. We will be practicing physical distancing throughout the score. This means we will keep a 10 foot distance from other movers, and only make physical contact with people we are sheltering with.

Once you register, we will send you the event venue info and our physical distancing guidelines.
This event happens on unceded Chochenyo Ohlone land. We will be collecting donations for the Sogorea Te Land Trust, and you are encouraged to contribute to the Shuumi land tax. The event itself is free of charge.
What to bring: Layers, sun screen, water, note book or art pad, snacks.
Unfortunately we cannot pass round fresh fruit as we usually do in the Global Underscore, but you are welcome to bring your own to eat during Sharing.
We look forward to sharing the dance with you,
Ronja, Vitali and René
Other Info: We are encouraging dancers throughout New Mexico and beyond to join us in this Global Under Score to celebrate Contact Improvisation, and especially to honor and celebrate the life and creative works of Nancy Stark Smith.
