No Neutral Canvas: a personal dramaturgy

Adv
Week 4, 1.8.–5.8.
11:40–14:10 / XL
Arsenal 4

The art of performance is a crucial space through which to interrogate notions of identity and agency. In dance, those individualities have often been buried under fantasies of homogenisation or neutrality. The bodies on stage matter! Creative output, resulting from lived, subjective experience, is intimately linked to the body of the performer and their relationships with the outside world. Instead of looking at the body as simple morphology, physical appearance or technical ability, this workshop will facilitate each performer’s articulation of their own personal dramaturgy, and explore the ways in which this dramaturgy both informs and empowers the creative process. Through group discussion, situational and movement exploration, journaling, and somatic practices, the participants will come to experience their relational body as the creative canvas.
