A space to explore and engage in the practice of Playing the Groove, and experiment with relationships between individual and collective groove. Playing with alternative groove, forces of push and pull, and connecting with others through bodily listening, insistence and resistance. Involving groove as metaphor - sliding down the groove and climbing the slope, exploring highs and lows of flow, swinging groove and pushing beat.
Note: If possible bring own headphones and electronic device with a musical groove that makes you move.
... Resist. Insist. And don’t let go.
[I play] a different kind of groove
