Trail of Trash Workshop - October 3
At this family oriented workshop, you’ll learn the trail that street litter takes in NYC and the impact this has on nature both locally and globally. You also learn Native American dances that reference nature and can drum on upcycled objects. Together we’ll dance and make some noise for harmony and balance.
  1. Saturday, October 3, 10:15am-11:15am
  2. Washington Park, 5th Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets, Park Slope, Brooklyn

Upcoming Performances
Overflow, our current work-in-progress, is a hypnotic and sculptural dance reflecting oceanic currents and rising tide patterns. It features live grooves on piano and bass by composer Joshua Davis. Overflow continues our ecological series, The Human Mapping Project, using the human body as a reflective tool, modeling device, and interpreter of the natural world to explore our relationship with and impact on nature.
Preview performance: November 10, 7:30pm
@ Dixon Place, 161 Chrystie Street
Available for tour beginning Spring 2016.   View video clips.
What is TOSS?
TOSS is a new work-in-development that examines consumerism and waste. TOSS is supported in part through a Marion International Fellowship for the Visual and Performing Arts and furthers investigations begun with The Human Mapping Project. The TOSS journey includes conversations, workshops and work-in-progress showings. We began at The Chautauqua Institution in August, and will continue with scheduled events through Fall 2016 and beyond.
