Calling ALL people (all ages, all ethnicities, all bodies)
who wish to be part of a large scale choreographic project that will be performed in Wellington, NZ.
No experience needed, just a passion for peace, a beating heart & breathing lungs.
This project is in memory of the Conscientious Objectors during war, their families, and all those who have the courage to say 'yes' to peace. CLICK TO READ MORE.
I have been chewing on this project for over 8 years and now I want to act and need your support! I am hoping for 100 people to make an impact. More would be a bonus.
What I ask of you:
- Learn the simple movements at home that are posted on this fb page.
(I will post advanced, intermediate, beginner options. Including one for people who need to sit, or can't use arms easily)
- Turn up at Oriental Bay, Wellington Saturday 27th April. ANYTIME between 12-1pm. Meeting place to be advised
- Stay as long as you like (minimum 10 mins, maximum 1 hour)
- Wear only white clothes/accessories.
- Share this event friends & family who you think would love to participate.
What you will get:
- A chance to express how much you value finding peaceful ways to work out conflict.
- Express how much kindness matters to you & back up Jacinda Ardern's UN stance.
- Have fun participating in a meaningful community event.
- Learn new stuff.
About me (Anna Groves) - I trained in Dance & Choreography in the early 90's and have a Bachelor of Performing/Screen Arts (Unitec). I'm also a certified trainer in Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and run retreats/ workshops Internationally. I'm a mother of 3, a nana of 1, and work alongside my husband Rob. This will be my first large scale choreographic project in 22 years since the birth of my son. And yet, only now do I feel equipped for 'Keep the Peace - NZ', and only now is it the right time. This year I performed in the NZ Arts Festival in Michael Parmenter's 'OrphEus', which woke up my creative bones.
