Dear <<First Name>>,

This August, Watermark Arts is thrilled to adventure into a new medium of creative exchange - the Zoom film premiere! We invite you to reserve your place in the virtual audience as we share two new films with subjects quite dear to me.
 
Materadancescapes
Sunday, August 16, 1 - 2 PM EDT 

A trio of short dance films responding to the canyons and caverns of Matera in southern Italy, a site steeped in mythology and human history as one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Q&A with choreographer Elaine Colandrea, filmmaker Prue Jeffries, composer Morena Boschetto, and performers Claudia Catani and Naomi Walker will follow the films. Special guests Teresa Barbaro and Paolo Montagna will join live from Matera to speak about the distinctive features of the film location. 
 
Susan Harper
Heart of Continuum

Sunday, August 23, 1 - 2:30 PM EDT 

 
A cinematic celebration of Susan’s extraordinary life journey.
Born in Africa to missionary parents, Susan began her devoted exploration of Continuum with Emilie Conrad in 1975, partnering with her in various ways until Emilie's death in 2014. Continuum Montage, Susan's lifework, began as a record company and grew into the full expression of the innovative somatic practices born of Susan's deep inquiries and collaborative nature. Susan Harper, Heart of Continuum was created to honor Susan's 70th birth year. A birthday toast with Susan will follow the film.

Reservations are limited for these one-time-only events. Reserve by clicking on the designated premiere buttons below. I hope to see you at Materadancescapes, Susan Harper, or best of all - both!

With enormous excitement,
Elaine and the Watermark Arts Creative Team

WHAT IS REFUGE?

Year after year, I would find myself captivated by a sculpture of a contadina - a peasant woman - in Matera's MUSMA Museum.
Being nearly the same size as each other, on one visit I decided to place myself in her exact position in an attempt to understand my fascination with her. Once I took on her form, I discovered her secret.
The secret slowly grew in me over time, eventually becoming the
ten-minute dance film, What is Refuge? Che Cos'è il Rifugio?
Filmed in the historic San Falcione cave complex in Matera,
filmmaker Prue Jeffries, composer Morena Boschetto and I worked in close collaboration to share "her" story - a universal story of all who can't breathe, all who seek refuge.

CELEBRATING SUSAN HARPER

What motivates me to travel and teach?

The deep motivation is the impulse to incarnate. It is a spiritual, soulful, creative impulse. An impulse to serve, to bless, to participate in creation...

.....to live with a deeper current and streaming of the whole...
while we meet the enormous creative challenges of our time.


~ Susan Harper from Heart of Continuum

THE ELEMENTAL EXHIBITS
This four-part series features photographs, film, haiku, poetry, and 
movement meditations through which to deepen your connection to our primal home, Planet Earth. Consider the ever-present ground beneath us, the air we breathe, the water that saturates our bodies, and fire that transforms us.

The practice of becoming elemental offers a path to restore
our wholeness. We hope you find nourishment and support here during the global challenges of this time.

Moving Art Cards - You are Art, Living Art!

Inspired by Prue Jeffries’ nature photographs from around our planet, the Moving Arts Cards awareness practices are drawn from Elaine Colandrea’s years of teaching Continuum. The intention is to create an artful home practice that extends a class/workshop experience.

The first edition is a set of 36 living art experience cards wrapped in a silver organza bag that you can take with you anywhere.
