Participants develop critical writing about their performance practice by engaging in a series of movement and discussion-based exercises. We will press into confusing and nonsensical ways of engaging in critical dialogue, using these disorienting spaces as potentially expansive tools for finding clarity. Participants will be guided through exercises to approach writing about their work as an extension of their work, rather than as something outside of their work. In this way, we will question how a practice of writing about our work can be integral to our process of making work.

No experience necessary, just an interest in engaging in performance processes and a willingness to experiment.

This workshop is co-facilitated by Elena Rose Light and Alex Romania.
