Workshop Description:

In this workshop, we will engage our bodymindspirits as portals. Over our week together, we will use improvised movement, dream journeys, sounding, writing, and drawing as our transportation devices, firmly grounded in the sensory immediacy of our beds, sofas, floors and windows. We will fly wide to honor speculative embodiment: the edge-spaces between what is and what could be. Let’s dream together. All welcome, grounded in disability culture values.
