About this workshop:

Participants will work on shifting concepts from the two dimensional 3:4 rectangle to the body. The investigation process of transformation from intellectual concepts to physical movements will be an exercise for both the brain and the body. We will use our own gestures, words, images and experiences to create movement. Dance is a monologue, flowing resistance activity uses dance to deliver a delicate and powerful message. How do these practices speak to urgent political and global issues today?

Participants will be asked to bring 10 ordinary props that will be explained in the first workshop. They should also bring a camera phone or a laptop.
