Lights Out, ecstatic dance with
at High Frequency Loft
Dance artists Nadine Lollino and Trey Donovan have been co-hosting dance events in Santa Cruz, California and recently moved to Taos. Their dance offerings vary from guided moving meditations to freeform dance events called Light Out, where other than minimal star-lights, the lights are turned off to encourage a more inward dance exploration.
MovementLab consists of dance/movement classes, moving meditation, yoga, massage, butoh, dance making, conscious listening, retreat, performances, music/sound education, the sharing and evolving of ideas. It is a place for exploring our conscious body in relation to our environment using a variety of movement conversations and inspirations.
Nadine Lollino has been creating and performing in the arts of dance, costume making and video since 2002. She is currently working under MovementLab, and also co-founder of multi-media collective PosterchildArt. Nadine has previously danced with Anatomical Dance Theater, Breakbone Dance Co., and the Humans, all Chicago-based companies. She has been presenting her own works since 2005, traveling nationally and internationally. Nadine has also been practicing massage therapy and teaches yoga since 2002, and you can find her at Essential Massage here in Taos and ongoing classes at TaoSatva! She has been developing lightly guided freeform movement practices for all communities to connect to the healing found in dance and music. Originally from Chicago, Nadine spent the last year and a half in Santa Cruz, California and has just moved to Taos! Check out www.movementlab.dance for current projects and www.posterchildart.com for past Chicago projects. Nadine’s main musical influence is from working closely with musicians in performance. Her playlists reflect this energy through selections that move the room in a lively exchange between dancer and music. To hear some of her past playlists go to https://soundcloud.com/posterchild-art
Trey Donovan brings together such diverse cultural elements as music/sound-art, language, dance, sculpture, structure and technology to synthesize impressions of our place in the universe. His recent projects involve him in music and dance composition and improvisation, and draw on influences from nature, culture, and experimental artistic discoveries. Trey has studied, taught and performed with a variety of butoh-based companies and teachers since 2001, in the SF Bay Area and Seattle. He has also just recently moved to Taos!
