Workshop - Daily Practice: Through a Performative Lens by artist and educator Kelly Reedy and Choreographer Susan Sentler

Description
Rooted in the varied modes of performance by artists within the exhibition Stagings. Soundings. Readings. Free Jazz II, this workshop explores activities and strategies to stretch our daily embodied and sensory awareness. It will facilitate participants in discovering and physicalising the building blocks utilised as material for the various performative modalities experienced. Moreover, through play and tuning in to somatic (bodily) knowledge, the over-riding exhibition theme of climate change can be proactively dialogued and questioned.
