Moving Through Grief: A Discussion on Dance in Grief and Healing

September 26, 2023 by Andrea Dono

What is it to love another, in this life and beyond? When we lose the people we love, can that love somehow keep them alive? Might those we grieve be nearer than we think, just—as it were—on the other side of life? Or perhaps nothing can be held forever, not in memory nor in our hearts. Through a combination of talks and art events this fall, this series will explore these questions through continuous conversations and considerations on the nature of grief—how we understand our grief, what we grieve, and the ways in which grief figures into our lives. Moving Through Grief will feature Jennifer Matthaei Cottrell (Certified Yoga Therapist), Anna Morris (Licensed Dance Therapist and Co-Owner of Harrisonburg Dance Cooperative), Rubén Graciani (Dean of JMU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts and Professor of Dance), and a performance choreographed by Ellie de Waal (Co-Owner of Harrisonburg Dance Cooperative). Doors open at 6:30PM, limited seating. more
