Joe Landini leads a series of regenerative, healing workshops for community members in the Tenderloin and Bay Area based dancers that include elements of performance, storytelling, journaling, somatic dance and live drumming. The workshops will be inspired by elements from the Tenderloin such as found art, poems, photos and other text that will culminate in a new performance.
Registration for multiple workshops is highly encouraged!
