Erratic Dance

Welcome to Erratic Dance! It’s a dance party where you can be free to express yourself, erratically. Get up, get down, fall on the floor. Weirdos and clowns are WELCOME. Non-consensual behavior is NOT WELCOME. No Creepers.

Sliding scale $10-$20 to cover the space.

Awesome musical artists/ DJa providing the beats –
7-8pm Lichen will be playing an acoustic set on the piano
https://soundcloud.com/w_lichen

8-9:30pm Morgen Love
https://soundcloud.com/daddiedearest

9:30-11pm Bodhi McBoatface https://soundcloud.com/bodhilicious

This is NOT Erotic Dance. This is NOT Ecstatic Dance. This is Erratic Dance.

Rules of Erratic Dance:
1. Dance – It’s called “Erratic Dance,” NOT “Erratic Stand Around and Talk to Your Friend in the Middle of the Dance Floor.”

2. Ask First – Ask before you dance with someone. Maybe if they don’t look at you, don’t even ask. Some people don’t even want to be asked. If you don’t know, let them be. Some people want to dance alone.

3. Share the Space – Yes. Your dance moves are DOPE. Leave room for other people’s DOPE dance moves. Don’t let your dance thing take over the space.

Thanks for helping to make this a great event!

INSTRUCTORS::

KATIE BACHNER, Green Materials Consultant

Ever since I could remember, I have been sensitive to my environment. The colors, the smells, the lighting, the architecture, the art- these all impacted my behavior. Sometimes they depleted me and sometimes they invigorated me.

This proclivity led me to pursue an MA in Art History from Sotheby’s Institute of Art and then work in several New York City art galleries as a curator. I was fascinated by how color, shape and composition incited visceral sensation in the viewer. However, as time progressed my interest took a turn to the built environment. I became increasingly aware of climate change and learned more about how homes could be built to support both human and environmental health. Fortunately, they are inherently connected!

I began taking night classes on sustainable building at NYU and pursued and received green certifications from the US Green Building Council (LEED GA) as well as the International Well Building Institute (Well AP). I decided this was where I wanted to direct my creative energy. Soon after, I started working as a healthy materials consultant at the highly regarded green building consulting company, Healthy Building Science. After three years, I wanted to combine my love for green building with my artistic background.

When the opportunity presented itself to team up with Rachelle, I knew it was meant to be. I feel grateful to be working with such a talented designer. Furthermore, it is an honor to be a part of my clients’ process of creating the place that they call home.

RACHELLE PADGETT, Interior Designer

Like many designers, my story starts at a tender age. My childhood bedroom was splashed with rainbows, and the ceiling painted a brilliant blue full of cottony clouds. I got an unusual thrill by rearranging furniture, and agreed with my mom’s frustration that the kitchen could function so much better with a proper pantry and more counter space. Some of my fondest memories are of weekends spent sneaking into half-constructed homes and taking trips to the hardware store with my dad; I, happily engaged in the paint aisle, while he puttered around the power tools.

My parents, an engineer and science teacher, instilled in me a deep respect for the natural world. After moving from Virginia to California, meandering through nonprofit work and returning to school, I founded Synthesis Interiors & Color in 2007 to bring eco-friendly interior design to a wide range of clientele. The Green Materialist takes an even deeper dive into conscientious sourcing, specifying safe alternatives to conventional building materials that meet the highest standards for their environmental and social impact.

When I’m not hiking or on a yoga mat, I volunteer as the Outreach Coordinator for the West Berkeley Design Loop, promoting cross pollination of the East Bay’s bounty of local design resources. I’m also faculty at UC-Berkeley Extension, my design alma mater, where I teach a course in Interior Finishes and Materials.

Orion Freeman is a singing, songwriting, guitar-playing seeker from the woods just beyond the mortar and bricks of Philadelphia. His souled-out, sometimes reggae-infused, flamenco-tinged, bluesy folk-rock aspires to move: your shoes; your heart; the cobwebs, so as to allow your soul to shine. Hovering somewhere within the chasm between the worldly and the divine, his music is an intimate glimpse into the spiraling states of freedom and folly, playfulness and prayer. In April of 2017 Orion released Morning Son, his second full length record, and has been touring throughout the US since, with Thomas Seyoum providing harmonic support.

Men's Circle with Alexander Kugler (Telegraph Room)

A call to all self-identified men to come convene in circle, to be witnessed and given the opportunity to practice taking off the armoring that this society, ill in its understanding and teaching of manhood, has trained us to wear.

We will gather every second Wednesday of the month at the East Bay Community Space and welcome in the warmth of brotherhood through sharing and prayer together (prayer is non-denominational, earth based, and always optional).

Please share this invitation with any you would like to support in embodying the full spectrum of manhood, claiming the depth of our sensitivity and profundity of our power.

All expressions are welcome so please bring musical instruments or medicine tools if you like.
A small co-created altar will be in the room with us.
Each person will have time to speak, express, explore and be witnessed.

Sliding scale $20-$10
None turned away for lack of funds.

Alexander Kugler is a founder of a stream of men’s work he calls Manhood Embodied (www.ManhoodEmbodied.com) which includes the study and reclamation of ancestral wisdom, the moving towards liberation from internal and external patriarchal systems of oppression, and the cultivation of communion with the Earth and alignment with Spirit.
