This workshop is open to anyone wishing to create with greater presence and precision by exploring the space between the self and other–as well as the creative self and persona–in movement, performance, and written texts. By cultivating an understanding of the why and how barriers to the transmission of our work are constructed, we become more aware of the habits impeding our ability to fully create and connect with others. Following a warmup grounding the body in space and time, we will explore the relationship between creation and presentation through exercises in movement, writing, and performance. Artists and researchers across disciplines are invited to take part and dance experience is not required, but rather an interest in / experience with movement, composition, writing, and / or performance.
