Sessions will work with approaches to undercutting the ‘blink' that forces us to judge each other at first sight. Some questions: How can we engage choreographic structures that resist determining who we think others are? Can we expand the notion (offer more context or framing) of the 'blink', the 'gaze', 'perception' of self in relation to others? Come ready to read, perceive, observe and witness. 

The Deconstructing Perceptions  workshop was developed in part with Jen Polins at pOnderosa Movement and Discovery in Germany.
