This MELT workshop is offered virtually via Zoom:
Collaboration, contagion, and ______________.
The TRY team’s collaborative work circles around the crises and potentials of land, healing, movement, consent, ownership and solidarity. We seek a soft experience where land acknowledgement and fascia can be woven into a single conversation. Where bodies are energies and powers at the same time, always entangled within the ecologies from which they emerge. By learning about each other, we become more aware of ourselves and the many contexts, contagions, and beings that shape and are shaped by our time together. The classes will be framed as winter work, as hanging out in mysterious and nonproductive states intended to support creative growth and blossom at some later date. The classes will attempt to generate a precarious and curious space between engagement and refuge, being present with MLK day, inauguration, the ongoing impact of COVID, and the importance of shared dance and inquiry.
We will move, write, listen, sense, talk, and play… alone, in virtual duets, and in group zooms.
Each class will be co-taught by 2 of the TRY team:
- M: Ishmael + jose
- Tu: jose + Kevin
- W: Snowflake + Kevin
- Th: Keith + Snowflake
- F: Ishmael + Keith
Produced by Circo Zero, and choreographed by Ishmael Houston-Jones, TRY will premier some kind of collaborative performance and shared experience in Fall 2021 in San Francisco, supported by visual artist SWOON/Caledonia Curry.
