hey sudoroom & noisebridge

an artist friend of mine and a founder of a mycology (mushrooms as
material) company is also a really cool person!
She's doing this pride weekend performance event Saturday at Lake Merritt
in oakland.

I think this would be appropriate for the sudoroom & noisebridge crew

LET'S KEEP THE BAY AREA WEIRD!

Hi friends & accomplices,

you're receiving this personal invitation because you are:

1) awesome & experimental & not afraid of weirdness
2) are fond of me, Chani Bockwinkel, Caroline Alexander, Sappho, Kate Bush,
Ciara, and/or any number of other contemporary and historical goddesses.
hehe.
2) live in the east bay or are not easy bay-averse
3) will forgive me for this because we all love each other and you know the
drill:

SF Chronicle has decided to cover Heavy Breathing
<http://www.eastbayexpress.com/oakland/fitness-for-your-brain/Content?oid=4362132>,
the summer conceptual fitness series i co-programmed, for the front page of
their upcoming Datebook section. They're sending a journalist and
photographer to our next session, THIS SATURDAY, and we'd love a strong
showing of friends + participants for the occasion. Please come support!! :)

Saturday's session is a one-hour weirdo fitness experience under the
direction of Chani Bockwinkel and Caroline Alexander, that will involve
stretching + dance-aerobic-type exercises inspired by the new work they
have been developing around Sappho and Sapphic poetry + an awesome
soundtrack featuring Kate Bush + Ciara + others. More details (from fbook

DESCRIPTION: Imagine somatics + Kate Bush + Ciara: we'll get sweaty and
circular, moving our A$$ muscles and feeling our insides together. Read at

ready to project yourself into history while invoking ancient greek women
and contemporary goddesses.

Wear gym shoes and an outfit that brings out your deep femme/tough exercise
queen.
