6-day research workshop - 

03 - 08.07.2020

our bodies are a layered collection of memories housed in the muscles as well as the mind. these memories act to both push and pull us. from them, we construct our sense of self. with them, we come to understand what we have been through. in our work, we access memory and deploy it as a sculptural tool to build a richer set of connections to our physical selves. these connections produce references for who we are and projections of whom we want to be. our work develops tools for accessing the unedited—even unrecognizable—elements of memory in our subconscious selves, and for manifesting those revelations in movement.

6 day workshop 24.06 - 29.06.2019 

this workshop is an entrance into our process of creation. we will guide you through theatrical tasks and physical settings that we have used to help access the unknown and unexplored spaces existing inside of us. we will allow ourselves the freedom to discover meaning within our experience and open a portal to endless possibilities of expression. we will take the time to dive deeper into this place where we can hear our own voice; where we can hear our own way of communicating and relating.
