Doll Making Action - Maria Flegas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

From an inspired conversation within the Shamanic Dolls Company [Maria Flegas, Melinda Cary and Anastacia Dadashpour] comes the launching of the Doll Wall.
What if the walls on the borders were actual entities? What if they held our stories? If they could speak~ what would they say? What is it that makes a human Migrate~ and what are the edges that we encounter to do so internally and externally?
Doll Making is a shamanic process that asks a series of 7 questions~ geared towards externalizing a character and journey through the craft. Share your own story of 'crossing borders', inner and outer landscapes, past and future, and encountering 'edges' inside and out. With each question, another part of the doll is created~ and a part of the journey is revealed.
Dolls may be kept, or they may be donated to the larger "Doll Wall Project". Donations of $10 for materials requested.
Maria Flegas has been dancing since the womb. She is influenced by her Greek ancestral (ecstatic) dance, as well as many other forms such as Butoh, Yoruban, Modern, Tribal Fusion, and Acro Dance. As a former US gymnast and circus artist, her spirit has a propensity to fly as well as draw influence from deep in her body, the earth~ and stories of origin. Maria loves to facilitate Authentic Movement ~wherein the raw, uninterrupted impulse of the body can emerge from the softest of tissues. She also draws from elemental, ancestral and imagistic influences in facilitating Butoh and Ritual Movement. She is especially excited about working in different landscapes and building a fun and adventurous community experience.
