In this Life/Art Dances workshop, we begin with a dive into the internal landscape of the sensorial body using guided somatic-based movement as a source for creative exploration and self-discovery. The dances that arise from these movements will be further explored using drawing and creative writing. This creative use of various modes of expression enlivens the conversation between body, imagination, life experiences and art making. This process creates the opportunity for you to make meaning from movement, and to uncover connections between your dances and your life experiences.
We will be working on the body parts of the hands and arms and movement metaphors that arise from these body parts. What do you wish to embrace in your life, or carry with you? What do you wish to let go of, or release?
No dance experience needed. Art supplies provided.
