About this workshop:

Co-taught by the TRY Team: Ishmael Houston-Jones, Keith Hennessy, Snowflake Calver (Yoeme, Mayan), jose e. abad, Kevin O’Connor.

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 workshop will attempt to generate a precarious and curious space between engagement and refuge, being present with queerness, the ongoing impact of COVID, and the importance of shared dance and inquiry. The workshop will be framed as summer work, as hanging out in playful and nonproductive spaces, engaging with heat, light, exteriors, long days.

We will move, write, listen, sense, talk, and play… alone, in virtual duets, and in group zooms.

Spaces in the TRY workshop are limited. Our intention is to prioritize a BIPOC majority, which reflects the racial composition of the TRY teaching team (3 black/indigenous/AAPI: 2 white). We are asking white folks to identify themselves when registering so that we can meet these goals. This is part of TRY’s approach to decentering whiteness in both content and participation/empowerment.

Produced by Circo Zero, and choreographed by Ishmael Houston-Jones, TRY will premier some kind of collaborative performance and shared experiences in Fall 2021 in San Francisco, supported by visual artists SWOON/Caledonia Curry and Monica Canilao.
