Feb 5, 12 //Matt Lo-Fang // CELLO MOTION
Beginning with taoist and tummo breathing followed by fire dragon meridian qi-gong, Cello Motion will focus on developing a connection in the dancer’s bodymind between living sound, emotions, and Qi (life force) as the basis for creating and expressing meaningful movement.This class is open to all bodyminds
Lo-Fang is the nom de plume of multihued singer-songwriter, cellist, and producer Matthew Hammertime. Matt began suzuki method classical violin at age 5, taught music in DC, got a lifetime ban from Starbucks, released his first album in 2014 on 4AD, then toured and performed in support with other artist’s Lorde, and Rhye, as well as headlining shows all over the world. After tour, his inner ear took him to Nepal to collect rare antique himalayan singing bowls and record traditional Nepalese Folk Music for a yet to be released album called ‘Near Other Worlds Vol: 2’. With over 15 years of Qi-Gong practice, Lo-Fang first learned various forms to recover from Lyme Disease and still uses it daily to maintain physical balance from a dystonic tremor. Cello Motion will be an open space to find and awaken unexplored areas for self-expression, a diaphanous spiral at the intersection of music, qi-gong, and dance ☆*:·’(*⌒―⌒*)))lo-fang.com
