WORKSHOP: RADICAL SLOTH
Performance as self-care
Taking care of each other and ourselves
Performance training meets self-care.
Borrowing from somatic practices and improvisation techniques, we will devote this time to paying attention to our own bodies, to the space and to each other. Investing in a non-judgmental approach, we can access movement and performance from a sense of presence in the here and now.
The practices that we propose in this workshop are part of our regular training and creative process. They range from writing and voice work, to movement and spatial experimentation. We believe that connecting to the present moment and unveiling its possibilities is an incredibly powerful artistic and political tool. Letting go of expectations and observing what is already there causes a shift that can be empowering in personal and artistic processes.
We would like to share these practices with you, and to build this ephemeral community together.
The workshop is 3 hours long. Fee: Sliding scale (£5-8.) No one turned away for lack of funds.
