In this workshop we explore how somatics, creative process and social justice come together. The inner space of the body is uniquely our own, and in this workshop we explore how we can bridge the experience of our own inner space with our experience of external space, both architectural and collective. This experience of inner space will be our point of departure to negotiate how we move from the individual to the collective while addressing both individual and group needs. We will reference the manifestation of fractal structures in nature and in human collectivity as we shift between micro and macro, all the while exploring our individual identity in the context of the collective. We are curious how we come together, how we include and exclude others, and how we share resources and space. Who leads, who follows, and how? Can we be intentional about our interactions in embodied ways?

The materials explored in this workshop will culminate with a public manifestation at The Museum of Modern Art, in conjunction with Judson Dance Theater: The Work Is Never Done. Participation in the workshop does not require you to participate in the manifestation at MoMA. Click here for more information regarding the exhibition at MoMA.
