Noguchi Taiso (Water Body Movement) with Mari Osanai What: 4-Day Intensive Workshop in Noguchi Taiso (Water Body Movement) Who: Mari Osanai - Master Teacher When: Thursday thru Sunday, Marh 8-11, 2018 Where: New Studio of Dance, 20 Commerce Street, Asheville, NC Cost: Thursday and Friday $40 each (After Feb 15th $45/each day) / Saturday and Sunday $80 each (After Feb 15th $85/each day) / Full Workshop $225 (After Feb 15th - $240) Noguchi Taiso physical training technique was founded in Japan by Michizo Noguchi. This introductory workshop will help you find new ways to improve your movement efficiency, while letting go of unnecessary tensions. Mari explains it's not about strength or resistance, or forcing the body to move in a certain way. Instead, it allows the body to melt. It is tender and flexible, and lets us give in to gravity rather than fight it. Noguchi Taiso allows us to find a more natural way to move. A quote by founder Michizo Noguchi: "I define Noguchi Taiso as a creation of one's new self as nature within us. Noguchi Taiso draws from a natural force that exists in our body and that is expressed through and with the natural materials that our bodies are made of. Taiso = Gymnastics is a way of exploring HUMANITY. My whole being is laboratory (atelier), research material (canvas) and scholar (artist)." Dancer, choreographer, teacher Mari Osanai has performed and taught in Japan, Canada, USA, Greece and Germany. Her workshops focus on Noguchi Taiso combined with the influences of her early training in Tai Chi, western dance methods, traditional folk dance in Aomori, Japan (her birthplace), and the connection between ones thoughts and sensation of weight. Osanais approach to movement research and exploration begins with a heightened awareness of gravitys influence on the body and the bodys connection with the center of the earth. Exercises in the workshop train the body to embrace its weight and heighten its sensitivity to move from its most relaxed and receptive state. Starting with images, such as washing the body with water, air, sunlight, workshop participants will discover the bodys vital energies rooted in its inherent hydrodynamics. Movement and form result as participants ingest imagery inside their bodies and allow the changes to shift the bodys interior. Noguchi Taiso training can benefit dancers, actors, somatics practitioners, anyone interested in expanding body awareness and capacity. Workshops are designed for all levels and complete beginners are welcome.

Movement and form result as participants ingest imagery inside their bodies and allow the changes to shift the bodys interior.

Noguchi Taiso (Water Body Movement) with Mari Osanai What: 4-Day Intensive Workshop in Noguchi Taiso (Water Body Movement) Who: Mari Osanai - Master Teacher When: Thursday thru Sunday, Marh 8-11, 2018 Where: New Studio of Dance, 20 Commerce Street, Asheville, NC Cost: Thursday and Friday $40 each (After Feb 15th $45/each day) / Saturday and Sunday $80 each (After Feb 15th $85/each day) / Full Workshop $225 (After Feb 15th - $240) Noguchi Taiso physical training technique was founded in Japan by Michizo Noguchi. This introductory workshop will help you find new ways to improve your movement efficiency, while letting go of unnecessary tensions. Mari explains it's not about strength or resistance, or forcing the body to move in a certain way. Instead, it allows the body to melt. It is tender and flexible, and lets us give in to gravity rather than fight it. Noguchi Taiso allows us to find a more natural way to move. A quote by founder Michizo Noguchi: "I define Noguchi Taiso as a creation of one's new self as nature within us. Noguchi Taiso draws from a natural force that exists in our body and that is expressed through and with the natural materials that our bodies are made of. Taiso = Gymnastics is a way of exploring HUMANITY. My whole being is laboratory (atelier), research material (canvas) and scholar (artist)." Dancer, choreographer, teacher Mari Osanai has performed and taught in Japan, Canada, USA, Greece and Germany. Her workshops focus on Noguchi Taiso combined with the influences of her early training in Tai Chi, western dance methods, traditional folk dance in Aomori, Japan (her birthplace), and the connection between ones thoughts and sensation of weight. Osanais approach to movement research and exploration begins with a heightened awareness of gravitys influence on the body and the bodys connection with the center of the earth. Exercises in the workshop train the body to embrace its weight and heighten its sensitivity to move from its most relaxed and receptive state. Starting with images, such as washing the body with water, air, sunlight, workshop participants will discover the bodys vital energies rooted in its inherent hydrodynamics.

What is that story that nags at you, the one that keeps you up at night, the one you haven’t yet dared to share? And how might telling it transform you? Writing a story, one that matters to you, takes courage. When you send your work out into the world, you risk judgement and ridicule. You risk alienating friends and family, and you risk being misunderstood. Nonetheless, there are some stories that demand to be told. In this course, we will explore what it means to write with abandon, to go out on a limb and begin writing the stories that matter most to you. Through in-class writings, short readings, writing workshops, and plenty of lively discussion about both the ethics and craft of memoir writing, we will write our way to deeper understandings about the most transformative experiences of our lives. This six-week class meets Monday evenings 6pm-8pm starting March 12, 2018.  To register by check instead of through Eventbrite, mail your check to Flatiron Writers Room, LLC, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC  28806 and include your email address. You will be registered when we receive your payment, space permitting.  About the Instructor: Jennifer McGaha is the author of the memoir Flat Broke with Two Goats. Her writing has also appeared in The Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, PANK, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Baltimore Fishbowl, Your Impossible Voice, and The Brooklyner, among other publications. An experienced teacher of writing students of all ages, Jennifer earned her MA from Western Carolina University and her MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts. She lives in Pisgah Forest with her husband and their two cats, four dogs, ten goats, and ever-changing number of laying hens. What's the refund policy?

Music Matters is a new series of appreciation lectures given by Asheville FM DJs, volunteers, and affiliates. Topics will vary according to the unique passions of the presenters but will likely focus on the historical, theoretical, or cultural aspects of various genres, artists, bands, labels, and even musical instruments. Every presentation is free to the public, with a suggested donation of $5-$50. Those who donate $50 will automatically become AFM members. Join us on Monday, March 12, from 6–8 pm, for the next presentation in this series, "Diving Deeper Into Hip-Hop,” presented by Alexis (Leckie) Wardlaw and Elizabeth (Li*La) Garland, hosts of AFM’s Slay the Mic. This event will take place at the AFM Station at 864 Haywood Road in West Asheville. Rap originated from real life experiences and transforms experience into an art form. In old West Africa, tribesmen would deliver stories rhythmically over drum beats, which had a strong similarity to rap. When slaves were brought over to the Americas, this style of storytelling continued, but it wasn't really well-known. As early as the 1920s, there were instances of lyrics being rapped over popular beats. By the end of the 1970s, rap had become a full-fledged musical genre, thanks to such artists as the Sugarhill Gang and Kurtis Blow. In this interactive presentation, Leckie and Li*La will help uncover the meaning underneath the pen. Participants will dissect rap songs, create their own lyrics, learn from local hip-hop and RnB artists, and discuss how hip-hop relates to current events. Local artists Lyric, Siyah, Nex Millen, F.T.O, 828 Trig, Siren XO, and T.Y. will contribute their expertise on how they express themselves through hip-hop and RnB music. Paper, pens, folders, and stickers will be provided.

Nicholas Hersh, conductor Itamar Zorman, violin This exploration of how the Romantic voice resonates in the 21st century begins with Beethoven who catapults listeners from the 18th century into the modern age in the fiery Leonore Overture. Rachmaninoff calls upon both his 19th-century Russian roots and a lush, 20th-century orchestral sound to create a sweeping, semi-autobiographical epic in his Second Symphony. And between these monoliths, a living voice of Romanticism: Jonathan Leshnoff, whose soulful Chamber Concerto is played by the inimitable Itamar Zorman. Zorman also lends his talents to conductor Nicholas Hersh’s arrangement of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”—not only a rock classic but a postmodern Romantic masterpiece. Program: Beethoven: Leonore Overture No. 3 Leshnoff: Chamber Concerto for Violin and Orchestra (2015) –Concerto encore–Queen/Hersh: “Bohemian Rhapsody” for Violin and Orchestra Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 2
