"Writing on bodies is a practice that I started with in autumn 2022. The practice explores stillness, intimacy, play and seriousness, new and old ways of being together and looking at the body. The practice is built on unlearning habitual ways and undoing of expectations while at the same time allowing space for different degrees of openness and connection. In the workshop we’ll be playing, drawing and writing poetry on the body. We become, we write and are written, read and are read, and explore the moving breathing book of bodies."
The workshop doesn’t require previous experience in dance, writing or drawing and is open for anyone interested in creative self-exploration. The participants are asked to wear comfortable clothes they don’t mind getting dirty and should be prepared to take off their shoes. Register here!
