About this workshop:

In our rooms (on the Zooms), we’ll move together, veering in and out of improvisational scores. Time and space to re-encounter the body dancing again; luxuriating in slow activation; shaking the body loose; giving way to swells and swoops.

Each day is grounded in a short text on the politics and poetics of queerness; on oppositional aesthetic strategies—e.g. de-familiarization, un-representability, un-translatability. (Texts provided in advance.)

The question: how is my body/choreography normatively scripted? As the scripts come into view, we treat them like they’re ours and not ours: what do i want to integrate, what do i want to resist, how to move otherwise?

Bring water, pencil, paper, desire.
