Where is the space that can hold our individual urges for sense-connection, expression and our love relationship with an audience? What external and internal elements enhance or mute our fullest expression of our enlivened physicality?

Edie and Melanie are co-guiding this workshop situated in the continuum between their experiences in 'art' and 'entertainment'. Within a space for collective and individual exploration, we will investigate the relationships between feelingness and formness. Using a guided, improvisational approach to sense-based experiencing, as well as learning aspects of sensual movement vocabulary, we all come together to re-examine in action, in being, and in dialogue our various realities and the cliches swirling around us.

This two day workshop is for people of all self-identifications who have an in-depth performance practice.

Participants must commit to both days of the workshop.
