Free movement is ridiculous. Touch is taboo. We cannot say No. We cannot say Yes. We individuate, we segregate, we stereotype. We do not see others, we do not know history, we do not see place. Just be a cogwheel through life, just disappear.
Liberation is a community affair. Come dance with us to remember yourself.
Parcon Resilience is an approach to liberation where the sensing and moving body is the foundation to reclaim power, identity, history and place. We use movement and contact improvisation with each other, objects and place to express feelings, needs and intentions through multiple layers of consciousness. The physical curriculum is integrated with movement analysis, non violent communication and anti-oppression methodology to inform personal and group reflection and to develop our ability to empathize and to use our collective embodied thinking together.
Parcon Resilience is a POC-centered collective with fiscal Sponsorship by Fractured Atlas. We strive for intersectionality in our community and pedagogy. Your contributions help make pro-active outreach to marginalized communities possible. Thank you!

Theory and Practice
By Ione L. Lewis
Moving around not sure where my body is going to take me
Trusting myself and not having to worry about how I look
just focused on moving to the groove of my on beat
Not having to worry about boundaries within my walls
For the longest time I felt restricted and powerless in my own body
Not feeling that I had the strength or the ability to move the way I wanted
Now I feel strong, free and alive
Adding a person to my movement is kinda of scary
I have to trust them, I don't trust easy
We have to move together and listen to each other's rhythm
My balance is not so great, I may need some assistance
Will they hold me up and catch me before I fall
This awkward C.P. body, who will understand the way it moves
Who will be able to move with me and pick up my rhythm
It actually happened I was able to move with other people and trust myself
as well as them, I let go and let my my body lead me
Rolling around on a rough surface of earth, afraid of falling on my face or head
as I gripped onto the rock
Pushing my body up at first I stumbled, that's normal on unfamiliar surfaces
Finally I'm on my hands in knees
Wow, now someone is holding me up and I'm flipping over their back
Up in the air I never felt a rush like this
moving together side by side, feeling each other's energy and movements
Communicating through touch is amazing
Feeling what we may be thinking without a single word
Knowing when to start, stop or continue with just moving my body
Feeling free and alive, now I can not stop
