About the Event

BlackLight Summit artist Symara Johnson leads a movement workshop. This class is in practice with your romantic present, a conversation that ignites the many parts within us to activate and shift our perceptions of the world. We take time to choose where we want to go and dive into our agency. Symara Johnson plays the role of a facilitator as she shares entrances and exits formulated through her own experience of being. You are invited to be whoever and whatever during this. All abilities and levels welcome!

About the BlackLight Summit

This event is part of the BlackLight Summit. We need some R&R! Not rest & relaxation, but risk and regeneration. Perhaps even rage & repair. There is no returning to what came before, so how can we fall into new possibilities, realities and ways of being? For this next season, how do we hold that "if no one goes first, how can anyone follow?" BlackLight 2023 is taking the leap into risking wrong, risking right, risking being loved and seen. In order to take these steps, how are we recovering and regenerating? We have lost so much. How can we find who we are and who we want to be? Join us for some much needed R&R.

Through three days of groundbreaking dance performances, inspiring keynote speeches, energizing movement workshops and intimate panel discussions, The Clarice’s BlackLight Summit aims to activate the unimagined possibilities in dance. It is a convening that envisions dance as a conduit to galvanize resilience and inventiveness, and in 2023 offers a combination of free and Pay What You Wish in-person events and free livestream events. Throughout the 2022–23 season, the BlackLight Summit will continue to foster community connection by facilitating a series of mentoring and professional development opportunities, conversations and performances.
