Yoga : Artist Intention Setting in the Coworking Space

We are excited to announce a new yoga practice at The Artist's Co-op on Sunday July 22nd from 630-7:45 pm for members and non-members alike! Feel free to invite close friends or family to share and experience this intention-setting yoga class with you.


We live in a chaotic world with much division. A huge part of our lives in spend on social media. But, artists need to get away from social media. We need to free ourselves from the chains of constant chatter and OTHER people's agendas so that we can hear our own intuition, write and perform our own stories.


Rachel Bennett will lead us in 75 minutes of coming back to ourselves. Moving on the breath together, we will honor both our autonomy and our inter-connectedness. Throughout the class, alignment cures, guided breathing and hands-on-assists will be given. You heart and mind will open, and you'll become stronger, more flexible, and acquire greater peace of mind. Rachel has taught inner city youth int he Bronx, people suffering with dementia, is the yoga teacher for the annual "Playtime Series" at The New Dramatists, has worked with women just released from Riker's Island through Liberation Prison Yoga and has certifications through Yoga Works and Anatomy Studies for Yoga Teachers. A published author, actress and dancer, Rachel believes insight new portals open within ourselves when we deepen and flow on the breath. Feel free to check her website out at www.rachelbennettyoga.com.


It takes a village. Would you mind sharing this event on your Instagram and Facebook pages, tagging the Artists Co-OP and Rachel Darden Bennett on both FB and Instagram? This will help us spread the word.


We are opening up this class to non-members! This is a special opportunity to invite your friends, family or partner to see where you hone and honor your creativity. We hope you will include the special people in your life to come share yoga with you at our special space!


Cost: $15 for members, $20 for non-members. (cash or credit cards accepted)

The Shelter Playdate: The Bright Edges of the World

Let's Have a Playdate!

Each month, The Shelter invites you to make a date with a new play. Here's how it works: Our staff specially selects a fresh off the vine play that we're really excited about. We pair the play with an insanely gifted director and cast. They rehearse. Then we present the play to you as a FREE reading. And all you have to do is click REGISTER and RSVP. Pay nothing. Just show up and enjoy. All the fun and theatre you could ever want—with none of the commitment.

This Month's Playdate

On a roadtrip across America, Little and Big are tasked with one thing; they need to spread their mother’s ashes. Along the way, they encounter family and friends, conjure memories and spirits. The play is full of wishes that will never come true. THE BRIGHT EDGES OF THE WORLD by Shelley Fort is an act of letting go.

RAICES states: "Parents separated from their children at the border (and other immigrants placed in detention) can’t get released from ICE custody to reunite with their families until they pay the full amount of their immigration bond. Bonds are set at a MINIMUM of $1500, and are usually in the range of $5-10K, even for asylum seekers without any criminal history. Unlike in the criminal system, bail bond companies either do not help people in immigration proceedings or impose very strict requirements, like private ankle monitors (which families have to pay to “rent”). Donate to our fund to directly support legal services for detained separated parents and the direct funding for bonds to get parents released!"

The Commonground NYC

The Commonground NYC

About

The Commonground is a series of monthly events for artists across disciplines to meet their creative soulmates. It operates on the belief that fostering great creative partnerships leads to the creation of great art, and that great art is a service to all. We seek to eliminate barriers-to-entry and increase the breadth of exposure artists have to like-minded collaborators.

Organized and led entirely by volunteers, The Commonground is free of charge for all attendees. The evening begins with a brief group discussion, led by an entertainment industry professional. This discussion will focus on “knowing the table you sit at, and the table you want to sit at" -- that is, sharpening your sense of self, your pitch, and what to look for in creative partners. The artists are then split into 3 groups to participate in the centerpiece of the evening: a series of rapid-fire one-on-one networking meetings (à la speed dating).

Throughout Commonground meetings, there will be refreshments, sign-ups for ongoing creative groups and projects, creative brainstorming tools to play and plan with, and industry professionals to answer questions and provide guidance.

We hope to hear "We got our start at The Commonground" for years to come!

This event is all about women's perspective and will be showcasing works in theater, music, visual art and spoken word created by female-identifying artists. At the last 30 minutes of the event we will invite female-identifying artists present at the event as audience members to share their own work. I'm very excited about this evening and would love to have you there with us! Tickets are pay what you can at the door.

Some more details about the event:
We will open the evening with the short play Kiss that Frog by Serena Cates. It was inspired by the social media trend of young adults writing lists about everyone they have kissed. This “Kissed List” hunch has opened the door to themes such as love vs. lust, sexual assault, drugs and alcohol, sexuality, secrecy and much more. The resulting script investigates the relationship millennial girls have with kissing, relationships, sex, and sexuality in general.

Directed by Angelita Esperanza Featuring: Amanda Erixon, Angelita Esperanza, Deborah Amaa, Eliya Rodeh , Kanja Grobler, Noy Marom, Rosemary Tross, Samia Omari

After the play we will have special guests showcasing their work:
