The summer was filled with more screenings, workshops and residencies.  Tamar returned to Valencia, Spain for a one-week residency this past June with the amazing community at Balletvale+, where physical therapists, professional dancers and actors worked alongside children with cerebral palsy. For a week the studio was bursting with energy - even the translators were dancing!

In July, Tamar taught Body Scripting workshops for participants in the Mark Morris Dance Group's Dance for PD (Parkinson's disease) program in Brooklyn.

In August, we were lucky enough to have our film screened under the stars in Japan at the outdoor Uno Port Art Films festival (, and Tamar & Gregg did a live Skype Q&A with a packed audience. Enter The Faun won the audience favorite award and was so popular that it was chosen to screen for a second time!  Thanks to Reiko Tahara and everyone at Uno Port Art Films, we now have Japanese subtitles that will be available on the next batch of DVDs that are released.

This September, there were screenings and outreach events in Madison and Spring Green, Wisconsin. Tamar and Gregg participated in a four day residency designed by Gordon Greene, a Zen priest who teaches at the medical school.The jam packed events included participation in the Integrative Medicine Grand Rounds, a monthly event in the Family Medicine Department at the University of Wisconsin Medical School; a screening of Enter The Faun; a guest teaching event in three Adaptive Fitness classes at UW's Kinesiology Department, a Dance Therapy class, and a workshop with the phenomenal Shakespearean actors from The American Players Theater. Saturday was an all day workshop at Spring Green Dojo with bodyworkers, Zen students, people with disabilities and healthcare professionals.  It was a fabulous time that truly demonstrated how our film can push boundaries in the medical, disability, and dance worlds, bring disparate communities together, and inspire an essential movement towards much needed change!

Later in September, Gregg led workshops in Sydney, Australia, with the Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
There, he worked with Catherine McNamara, a local
dancer and teacher. Together, they held four dance workshops a day with children, teens, and adults. Our Posse member, Robyn Lambird from Perth, joined Gregg for the week.

In October, Enter The Faun screened at the Pompidou Centre in Paris as a part of the Vidéodanse Films on Dance program.

As Enter The Faun continues to generate its own world wide
movement, our team of Daisy, Veronique, Tamar, Gregg and Karl seek to make the most of the opportunities to screen it and spread our message. Look for further updates and be sure to help us along the way by buying several copies of Enter The Faun. Thanks for keeping us going and your ever faithful support!

All our very best,

The Faun Team! (Tamar, Gregg, Véronique, Daisy and Karl)

Viva La Faun! Dispatches From Valencia, Spain #5

Today was our last full day in Valencia, Spain with the adults and students at Balletvale+. Huge strides were taken, new connections were made and an entirely new way of thinking and community was forged. Since this is the only night where we can actually take some time to enjoy this beautiful city, we're going to do just that, but stay tuned for another post before the end of the weekend that sums up our experience here during the week.
As always, thank you to our hosts at Balletvale+, the students, their parents and everyone who made this a truly unforgettable experience.
It's now official, this is our Valencia Posse, and we couldn't be happier to have you join us!
Hasta pronto, Valencia!
