Workshop: The Impact Between Words
February 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
A workshop facilitated by Kate Speer & Kayla Hamilton
- How do you hear and see ideas in the room?
- How do you feel your instinctual impulse?
- How do words shape your lived experience of the world?
This workshop will play with words, text, and personal narratives to craft parameters to explore the relationship of these ingredients in time and space. We will cycle through creating and sharing to have moments of discussion and dialogue around what we are sensing or not sensing. Layering sensory and textual elements into our parameters to play with how they reveal new interpretations and impact our performative presence. The dynamic pull between your intent and our interpretations will expand these explorations into multiple possibilities. Open to literary practices, 2D or 3D art, movement, or other artistic interests and disciplines for an embodied experience accessible to all bodies.
RedLine is wheelchair accessible, there’s a ramp at the front entrance (on 24th Street) and the facilities is all one level with an accessible bathroom open to the public.
