Concord Area Breakfast, June 4: Speaking from the Body

Tuesday, June 4, 2019
8:00 AM – 10:30 AM

At our June Concord Area Dream Factory event, Sarah Ford Terrey with “Speaking From The Body” will take us on a short journey with movement and story-based exercises that will put you in touch with who you are and what you might want to express. Join us!

Trained as a young dancer, first in her home state of Texas, where she began classes at the age of 3, and later as a student at the Juilliard School in Manhattan, Sarah Ford didn’t necessarily spend a lot of time thinking about painters.

But that changed when, as a young mother and dance teacher living in Westchester County, New York, in the early 1980s, she visited a show of paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

“At that exhibit, I found out that Georgia O’Keeffe had done some of her very early work just a short distance from where I had grown up, in the Texas panhandle,” the Carlisle resident recalled recently. “This was fascinating to me because I had left Texas when I was 18 years old to become a dancer in New York and really didn’t want any part of anything to do with Texas, but what she seemed to see in it, and her creative process in relation to her background, made me think about my home state anew.”

Soon, Ford was on a mission to research the life of the famed painter, and what she learned — along with the profound way it affected her own spirit and sense of herself as an artist — eventually manifested in a one-woman show written and performed by Ford called “Georgia & Me.” 

Join Sarah in her studio to experience speaking from the body.
