What is Flow?

What is Flow?

Flow is the essence of spirit, the base of human consciousness, the innocence of a child. It is the full awareness of the moment and yet the slowing of time. It is a healing place, a meditative place, it is a vulnerable place but a place of connection and rebirth. It is essential for humans to feel a sense of flow periodically to feel whole and fully human. The Flow Arts are a way into this essence. These movement arts can help remove the self-consciousness of lived-experience, allowing immersion one into pure focus, of movement, dance and rhythm. The Flow Arts have element of community and therefore a sense of belonging. This gives participants in that community the freedom to be seen while in their essence. If one is in total flow, they are in a place of acceptance of all emotions and they have the freedom to express it. Sometimes the feeling of flow can be so powerful that the realization that one is in a flow state is enough to knock them out and back into a state of self-consciousness. It is difficult to shake the chains of adulthood, judgement, fear and a sense of lack of worthiness. But flow is where this can happen. The Flow Arts help that journey. A flow state allows one to go beyond the knowledge of experience, giving those who are in it a sense of freedom, awe and wonder with the world.

Artistic Accompaniment

This past few days I was working with Rémi Laroussinie as an Artistic Accompaniment on a big show that I am creating for September. Rémi is one of the co-founders of Maison Des Jonglages in Paris, which is the only cultural body in the world that is officially recognized and identifies juggling as a field in contemporary art. This project is a blend of theatre, dance, object manipulation, clown, and of course, contact juggling. It is a 35 minute solo act that will be with the Kingston Symphony, and I am very excited to present this important piece of my work to the world in just under 4 months time. There is still a lot of work to be done, but having an outside eye certainly clarifies the intentions and directions of the piece, and I am have deep gratitude for Rémi to accompany me on this creative journey. This work deepens my practice and commitment to the juggling arts more and more, and Rémi has paved the way for this to happen in France. I hope to continue to pave the way for this to happen in Canada. We were also included as special guest on Pulsar Radio speaking about Art, and if Art can change the world. Give it a listen here:  ... read more

What People are Saying About Dawn

Since we met Dawn back in 2011, she has been a fundamental part of our planning and outreach. She is the best kind of advisor – someone who’s not afraid to tell you that you’re doing something terrible, when needed, but also who suggests positive solutions to problems you didn’t even know you had. We’ve spent three years getting better and better, and Dawn has played an important part in that. Nick Broad, founder

The Busking Project

Dawn Marie is an incredible instructor and coach. Her class was pack and she still managed to offer an amazing workshop with lots of personal attention. Her class was one of the highlights of the festival and I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a great coach. Carisa Hendrix, director of Prop Fest Alberta

Dawn is a professional, expert in her field of expertise who made the 2 hour workshop feel like a walk in the park. At the end, everyone felt that they accomplished what looked impossible at the beginning and felt the time just flew by. Joe Nifco
