Workshop Description:

This workshop draws on achugar's own practice developed through years of making performances as a method that can be utilized as a tool or a container for any creative process. Via this practice we investigate ways of uncovering what's already present (but perhaps repressed or suppressed/oppressed) in ourselves, and how to create the conditions to let it manifest and appear on its own. The practice of being in pleasure is a practice of undoing the learned hierarchical model of embodiment that has been programmed into us and to undo the shame that comes with it to unearth a more liberated, empowered, decolonized, uncivilized self that is more connected to our instincts, our hearts, our guts, and our sex to celebrate togetherness, and connection to the earth to ourselves and to others.
