An embodiment dance party, as part of Meg Foley’s exhibition Everything All The Time
facilitated by Foley
in Vox Populi’s Blackbox
approx 60 minutes

Let’s have a dance party that invites you to occasionally, lightly, enjoyably bring your attention to your body as you’re dancing… not to change it but to feel it. You do you while we all think about respectively the crown of our heads, or of the space between your fingers, or your perineum, or….

What you can expect:
-An introduction and overview of the different aspects of our bodies we’ll be bringing attention to throughout the dance party
-A led warm up to become sensitive to subtle sensations and shifts on our bodies
-A full on dance party where you can let loose as Foley suggests areas to think about and consider, while continuing to get your groove on.

This is a dance party. It is open to all and every body. Vox Populi is not a wheelchair accessible venue.

Meg Foley is a Philadelphia-based performer, choreographer, and director of moving parts, the name she ascribes to her various dance- and performance-based actions that explore the materiality of dance and physical identity as form. Her current research focuses on the nature and affect of ongoing improvisational practice and on improvisation and choreography as simultaneous practices of performance. Her work has been presented locally by the Philadelphia FringeArts Festival, Bowerbird, Thirdbird, and Icebox Project Space, and in New York City, Los Angeles, Canada, Germany, and Poland.

Her research has been supported by the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage, the Independence Foundation, and through a 2013 Stary Browar Cultural Exchange Residency (Poland). She is creative co-director of The Whole Shebang, an interdisciplinary arts space and studio in South Philadelphia that hosts workshops and classes and provides studio rental to artists at affordable rates.
