    Bunny Holmes on Rocky Horror Circus Show - Episode 35 of The Art of Flow

    Bunny Holmes on Rocky Horror Circus Show - Episode 35 of The Art of Flow

    In this episode with Bunny Holmes, discover an inside look at the workings of a family-style circus troupe, The Vespertine Circus, and their latest production - The Rocky Horror Circus Show!
    Bunny Holmes has been casting and putting on shows since preschool – first plays for the neighbors, then DIY dance recitals for friends from school, and by fourth grade, she was enrolled in before-school choir, after-school drama classes, and briefly missed school outright because she was touring as a toy-soldier in a youth ensemble Nutcracker Ballet. In high school, she started street performing around tourist attractions in San Francisco as a living statue.
    Alongside circus & performing arts, Bunny studied music history, humanistic psychology, and religious studies at UCSC. There she gained a reputation for coordinating large all-ages events both on and off-campus – often designed with an absurd, whimsical or humorous concept. Needless to say, her love of the stage has never diminished and when she told her friends she was going to start a circus, they believed her and some joined the cause.

    Taking the Stage Mari Hercher on Episode 34 of The Art of Flow

    Mari Hercher is a 26-year-old flow artist and doctor of physical therapy student. She is based in San Francisco but will be relocating back to her hometown of Los Angeles this spring to finish out her final rotation in school as well as dive headfirst into a new set of flow arts projects. Her first prop was rope dart, but she has since fallen in love with hooping, fans, and meteor dart. Mari has a profound appreciation for the capabilities of the human body and has a goal of facilitating healing by helping people understand their bodies through flow in its many forms.

    Creating a Flow Arts Collective with Arlene Smith and BJ Burg - Episode 33 of The Art of Flow

    Creating a Flow Arts Collective with Arlene Smith and BJ Burg - Episode 33 of The Art of Flow

    In this episode, I chat with BJ Burg and Arlene Smith as we dive into discussing the creation of a Flow Arts Collective! Discover how this happened, what were the challenges, advice from the founders for folks wanting to create their own flow arts or art collective nonprofits, and much more.
    BJ Burg (they/them) is a poi spinner, fire dancer, videographer, instructor, performer, and jack-of-all-trades for Seattle Flow Arts Collective. Outside of flow arts, they enjoy learning to dance, discovering local artists, building LEGOs, listening to music, and parenting little children in central Seattle. Professionally, they work as a researcher, project manager, and software engineer for a large company.
    Arlene Smith is a Seattle-based circus artist and community organizer who loves sharing her enthusiasm for movement, play, and self-expression with those around her. She is Executive Director and Co-founder of Seattle Flow Arts Collective, which grew out of her work organizing a weekly flow jam and workshop space called FlowShop. Her first prop love was poi, but you can most often find her hooping, roller skating, or juggling (and sometimes all three!).

    Diabolo with Chris Garcia- Episode 32 of The Art of Flow

    Chris Garcia, aka Draco the Juggler, is a San Francisco Bay Area-born juggler. He found his passion for juggling beginning in 2003 in high school through the juggling club advised by well-known juggler and Japanese teacher Matt Hall. Chris likes to practice many forms of juggling and especially likes playing with the diabolo ("Chinese yoyo"). Through his juggling career, he's traveled to many different countries, performed at a wide variety of shows and events, and has also taught thousands of people to juggle.

Cutting edge connection

This is on the cutting-edge of exploring the integration of physical arts and somatic therapy in a very direct experiential way. Very few people address the mind body spirit creativity connection so well. Thanking Morgan for bringing us new insights & awareness into this evolving field.
