NO CRUISING: Bodies in Play

Movement artist Andrew Pearson leads a workshop around Bodies in Play – an original physical practice informed by concert dance techniques, Yogic philosophy and holistic approaches to fitness and exercise.

Make sure to notify the instructor about any accessibility needs so they can be mindful of them.

Bodies in Play is part of our NO CRUISING program, at NAVEL from May 16–18. A portion of this program’s proceeds will be donated to the California Coalition for Women Prisoners’s #MeTooBehindBars initiative.


Andrew Pearson is a choreographer and movement artist based in Los Angeles. He has been hailed as “one of LA’s finest dance artists” by the LA Dance Chronicle and Cultural Weekly calls him “a provocative choreographer and imaginative presenter.”
