For over 16 years, the Zen Monkey Project has been consistently exploring the boundaries of somatic movement education and contemporary dance forms.
& a history of the zen monkey project and our perfomances can now be found here.
Our style is rigorous, experimental, and alive. Investigating the body, developing dynamic presence, and supporting curiosity are hallmarks of our distinctive synthesis.
Our practice draws from a variety of methods and approaches for questioning the body and embodying questions. Our curriculum melds these influences into creative work.
As contemporary movement artists we combine a reverence for tradition with respect for the individual's voice.
As educators we support the student's current process while presenting them tools for enriching their potential.
Our intensive invites you to investigate and embody your own working process, learn with a diverse group of artists, and share your experience with others.
