Workshop Description:

What does the body ask us to for(e)get while moving in an ever-shifting landscape? This movement and media workshop will explore hybrid performance practices through which artists consider the body, identity, and collective history in public space, whether that space is on stage or within the digital domain. We will dive into the urgent political and personal projects that draw artists to digital art forms. Together we will move slowly asking questions about connection, care, trust, and holding multiple realities.


Accessibility Notes:

The Courtyard Studio is located on the first floor of 122 Community Center. Studio door is 35.5 inches wide x 96 inches high. The studio has two levels: The concrete floor and the low-rise wooden floor. The wood floor is raised 2 inches from the concrete floor. There is a ramp located at the entrance of the studio that allows easy access to the wooden floor. There is a column located in the middle of the studio (20 inches wide) duly outlined with red masking tape at mid and floor level for easy identification. A 47-inch-wide, at-grade concrete walkway leads to the Courtyard Exit Door. The wooden floor is demarcated with red masking tape for easy differentiation between the two. The Courtyard Studio is a fragrance/scent free space.
