Freeform Dance With Meaghan Tiggrr Fearless
Freeform Dance: We all have a dance living in our bodies which does not belong to any one discipline, which is absolutely unique to each of us. In this workshop we will journey deep within ourselves to free it. We will create a safe, sacred environment in which we are encouraged to feel our vulnerabilities and express our strengths, and will move through guided meditations both in silence and with music. We will go forth into the unknown, giving permission to ourselves to let go of the rulebook and truly be danced. Whether a beginning-level seeker, a seasoned ecstatic dancer, or anywhere in between, this session will inspire and empower your personal creative process. Hopefully we will all have some fun along the way. Bring a notebook or journal; as time and interest allows, we will share our experiences with one another. -tiggrr4

Beauty + Ruin
This weekend you will find yourself in the aftermath. Two-dozen artists have built a landscape of beauty and ruin within large geodesic domes, ragged tents and hidden lounges. It starts with an intimate conversation in the corner of an army-tent turned Bedouin hide-away, continues on the dance-floor pressed against the bouncing crowd and Brooklyn’s brashestmarch bands, then finishes with a drink, a whisper and the sunrise slipping through windows. This party is about building the best we can out of the little we have. The Music: Mikerline Afro-Haitian Dance + Drum Troupe : The feverish intensity of their performance is built on the deep cultural history of Haiti and the legends born from it. The Rude Mechanical Orchestra : Mix a slew of drums with a bunch of brass then toss in a fire-cracker and you have the sound and movement of the Rude Mechanical Orchestra. The Hungry March Band : This is one of New York City’s legendary march bands. For a decade they’ve played the streets, warehouses and concert halls of our town and toured the world several times over. Their sweaty, classic sound captures the soul of this city in all its beauty and ruin. dj Kiva : One of the kings of The Dub Stop, he will be bringing his patented stutta-step sound that brings together the best of hip-hop to jump-up in a way that is guaranteed to move you. Cumba Mela : A dj trio that explores the boundless world of global bass music from tribal house to Balkan brass to electro and deeper… Junglez : Explores the dark side of dubstep and the science of broken beats. The Stellar Chic Duo : Arrive early to experience the experimental live composition mashing exotica with space age lounge in a new performance that must be heard. dj Zemi 17 : The late night crowd favorite brings in the sunrise with intimate techno and his self-branded space hause. For the past few years Zemi has been the resident dj at TheDanger events. Too many times we have planned on going home just after 7am but the sound of Zemi 17 and the energy of the crowd wouldn’t let it happen. But then, the dance floor at 9:19am is Brooklyn at it’s best. Plus mischief, fire and overhead performance by Anya Sapozhnikova, Carrie Cash, Tajna Tanovic, Kae Burk and the 626 Roving Sangria Pump (wait for it…) The Beauty + Ruin: Explore five geodesic domes built into living art installations themed: Waterfall, Storm, Play, Home and Survive. Each will be a world unto itself with light and fire, water and magic. Smaller installations will complete the articulation of ruin across the 13,000sqft. expanse of this deep Brooklyn loft. Lopi LaRoe, Arielle Bier, Olivia Katz, Anna Ialeggio, David Siegel, Ryan O’Connor, Deb Yoon, the House of Collections, William Jackson Etundi Jr., Lord, Jordan, Mark Krawczuk, Band of Bicycles and many more… Also, Swoon, Tod Seelie and Ben Wolf are putting together a show of stand-out art sold to benefit their Haiti Shelter project: konbitshelter.org. Drinks will be cheap, the night will be full and the fire will be real…Dress in your best rag-tag formal wear. Pull out that dusty ill-fitting tuxedo or the prom dress you burned to erase the memory then saved because even burned memories are better than nothing at all. And don’t forget the flower in your lapel. Note: This is the first Danger event in a long time and the last for the foreseeable future. (Something more interesting is coming…) Every once in a while a cause comes along that pulls out the best in people. Most of the art, the heart and the blood for this event and, the Domes for Haiti project it benefits, comes from Lopi LaRoe and her team of generous artists/builders. For more information on what this party is raising funds for see: http://www.domesforhaiti.org/ If you want to be a part of the event setup (it’s fun) or volunteer to build shelter for Haiti write to: firstname.lastname@example.org. 3rd Ward Brooklyn has graciously put off construction on their new second floor art spaces in order to host this fundraising event. 3rd Ward is full of heroes.

I forget how switching gears so quickly from full brain engagement to totally self directed whatevers is sort of disorienting. I’m looking forward to connecting with something constant in school and out, through various jobs, relationships, economies, and fashion trends over the last ten years (!): CRAFTING WITH YOU! So bring your half finished, your rediscovered, your dreamt upon, your wished for on a star crafts to our meeting. We love crafting together.
