Dance Workshop with Rosy Simas

Dancing Earth, SEEDS & SOUL: Indigenous Cultural Exchange & Festival, and Love /Speak Productions presents Groundworks: A Workshop on First Nations Cultural Protocols
Thursday, October 26: 2-4pm


You may sign up at the door

What does it mean to be "living on First Nations' land"?

In the area we've come to fondly call the Bay Area, it is essential to acknowledge that we are on Ohlone Costanoan territory. Whether we know it or not, as "settlers" of Ohlone land, many of us are often unaware or unconcious of the ways we partake in modern day forms of settler colonialism. The impact of this mentality manifests in negative actions that often lead to the destruction and replacement of that and those which already exist. So what are those things that constitute modern day settler colonialism? What is being destroyed? And how can I take mindful steps and actions that help to reconcile and offer reciprocity? When we learn to live in relationship with the original people of this land, we begin to unlearn the ways that harm the land we now love and call home, and also cultivate healing + harmony.

On October 26th, Dancing Earth , SEEDS & SOUL: Indigenous Cultural Exchange & Festival, and Love /Speak Productions welcomes you to a workshop that invites all community members to experience First Nations Cultural Protocols with representative of Costonoan Ohlone, and neighboring tribal representatives of Pomo and Wappo Nations. This acknowledgement has become increasingly topical at a time when many people, Native and non-Native, across the US are inspired and awakened to the role of First Nation peoples as leaders of the environmental movement. Our First Nations relatives are deepening their understanding and role in 1) Truth and Reconciliation; 2) how to activate Land Acknowledgement; and 3) how to start building good relations with First Nations peoples. At this workshop, the community will gain a deeper understanding about cultural protocols, will be able to participate in asking permissions and being welcomed to the land.

The Cultural Protocols workshop will be hosted by Kanyon Sayers-Roods (Costanoan Ohlone and Chumash), and other emerging leaders of the Bay Area Costonoan Ohlone. In the old days, it is traditional and desirable to offer gifts to host nations for cultural protocol. We invite our workshop participants to bring a small gift that represents themselves and/or their homeland or culture to partake in this protocol in our modern day. The intention behind this gift giving is to activate within you: "As a settler on First Nations' Land, what can gift can I offer to cultivate and manifest good relations with the people and the land I am now visiting, inhabiting or calling home? This can be a simple offering - something homemade, food cooked with love, veggies from your garden, a meaningful postcard, a song. For those who feel inclined to gift more, donations to support the forward progress of the movement, travel miles, the use of space to host workshops, etc., is also appreciated *** Pls stay tuned as we confirm other Ohlone representatives presenting at this workshop. ***

After the workshop, all are invited to participate in, or witness, an interdisciplinary workshop by Dancing Earth's Rulan Tangen that embodies, expresses and explores relationship buildin and reciprocity from a creative, kinetic, and rhythmic understanding.

The First Nations Cultural Protocols Workshop fee is sliding scale, and no one will be turn away due to lack of funds. We suggest a donation between $20-$50, a portion of which will be going towards a tribal funding initiative to be selected by our Ohlone Costanoan cultural advisors.

This workshop teaches the technical evolution of the corporeal language of the collective. To do this we will study the fundamental aspects that support the collective's unique identity. We will work on the development of tools that assist in the breakdown or blurring of boundaries, something that the company is known for. The aim is to find a space of encounter between urban dance, contemporary dance, Butoh and martial arts. From here, we will facilitate the learning of key aspects of our practice: dissociation and coordination, ground work, acrobatics, interpretation and collaborating within a group dynamic through partnering exercises.

This workshop is brought to you in partnership with the 19th Annual San Francisco International Hip Hop DanceFest happening Nov 17-19th at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre.
