Contact Improvisation: Gravity Goes Through The Membrane
A mixed-level contact improvisation class in which stability dances
with mobility in spherical space. We will work developmentallyto build
juicy internal connections that then take us into dancing, connecting
with space and with each other. Skills work will provide the foundation.
Establishing our safety gear allows us to work intelligently and
creatively with our own limits. Then, imagination, collaboration, and
grace provide the dance.
What is contact improvisation? Contact improvisation is a unique dance
form in which practitioners spontaneously create movement material with
one or more partners coming into and out of physical contact. It began
in 1972 as a performed motion experiment called Magnesium.

NEXT WEEK: June 2nd - LISA MEKIS - Development of our Relational Skills
with a focus on gender and sexual relationships
This evening will be part salon, and part laboratory facilitated by Lisa Mekis.
In our world of serial monogamy and polyamory it is part of our
work to develop relational skills that can navigate the territory of
intimacy, love, and sex. What is appropriate to communicate at the
beginning of a relationship, and how do we go about bringing a
relationship to closure? Through salon style conversation and a council
style gender circle we will approach the topics of ethics, expectations,
desires, successes, and mistakes, and ultimately bring greater awareness
and understanding to the subject. All are welcome.

The Progressive Voice for Peace
Forum and Concert to Benefit KPFA Radio
and Bring Progressive Influence to the Democratic Party
For Immediate Release: May 20, 2004
What: Forum and concert for peace to benefit KPFA Radio and Progressive
Voice of California
When: Wednesday, May 26th, 7:00 to 10:00 p.m.
Where: First Congregational Church, 2345 Channing Way (at Dana), Berkeley,
This event is the first in a series called Championing the Progressive
Voice. It opens with a forum on bringing peace to politics and government on
local, national, and international levels, and closes with a concert to
celebrate the power of our collective voices for peace.
Speakers include Medea Benjamin of Global Exchange and Code Pink; Van Jones,
founder of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights; Rabbi Michael Lerner,
editor of Tikkun magazine and author of several books, and Solange
Echevarria, cohost of KPFA’s Flashpoints Espanol. Larry Bensky, lauded
political and literary journalist and host of KPFA’s Sunday Salon, as well
as senior editor at MediaChannel.org, will moderate the discussion.
The concert, which starts shortly after the forum’s conclusion, features
local activist-musician Michael Franti of Michael Franti and Spearhead, plus
other special guests.
In an era of increasing corporatization of media, independent media plays a
crucial role in making the voices of citizens heard. Berkeley’s KPFA Radio,
the first and longest-running community-supported radio station in the U.S.,
has a long history of airing diverse viewpoints and supporting freedom of
the press. As the station experienced a $40,000 shortfall at its spring fund
drive, that history may be in danger.
And this is happening at a crucial time, as the Democratic Party struggles
to create a presidential platform that is significantly different from the
current administration’s, particularly regarding the Iraq occupation.
Several progessive organizations that are cosponsoring this event intend to
take the call for peace to the Democratic National Convention in July.
All are welcome at this event to support independent media and make their
voices heard in a dialogue on peace.
The benefit is cohosted by KPFA Radio, Global Exchange, Code Pink, and The
Ella Baker Center for Human Rights.
Suggested donation: $10 to $25 (no one turned away for lack of funds)

a three day campout in the mountains of Northern California
brought to you by English Ben and friends
Benjamin Llewelyn Hyder (10/9/76 to 4/2/03) was an integral part
of the dance music scene in the Bay Area for many years. He was
often the last one dancing, and gave an abundance of energy to
the community. His death last year left a hole in many of our
lives. This party is to celebrate his life and remember a person
we loved. The money for the expenses of this free party came from
Ben, who asked us before he died to throw him a rockin' party.
Music brought to you by some of Ben's favorite friends and DJ's-

Though many of you are deeply interested and involved in the fight to
protect water from privatization, the majority of the population remains
unaware of this ongoing struggle and its consequences worldwide. The
release of a new one-hour documentary called "Thirst" provides an
exciting new outreach forum and awareness-building tool.
This excellent new film elucidates the inherent drama of communities
fighting for control of their water and against corporate-driven
globalization. Thirst examines communities in Bolivia, India and
Stockton, California, facing contentious issues surrounding the
privatization of water, and skillfully places the debate in the context
of the 2003 World Water Forum in Kyoto, Japan. This film is a piercing
look at the conflict between public stewardship and private profit,
where activists claim that water is a human right and corporations
declare it a commodity.
"THIRST" will have its national broadcast premiere on Tuesday, July 13
on PBS's acclaimed "P.O.V." documentary series. (Check local listings.)
San Francisco: June 18-24 at the Roxie Theater, 3117 16th St. (415)
Featured speakers each night will address specific issues around water,
including labor, environmental justice and the recent Stockton struggle.
Stay tuned for more details! Contact Juliette at firstname.lastname@example.org to
help promote these screenings.
