Paid Workshop #1: Theater Grottesco: Movement and Gesture as Genetic Cultural Memory

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop begins with the premise that culture is stored in our genes as instinct. Glimpses of these memories can be seen as movement and gesture, many of them unconscious. Where language provides oral and written history, and thought gives us world views; movement and gesture, on a deeper and subconscious level, reveal memories of cultures foresworn, family and tribal histories, present pop culture messages imprinting without our awareness or consent, and perhaps even portents of the future. Participants should come ready to move at the ability they are able to; in loose fitting plain colored clothing (no advertising!), hair pulled back and jewelry off. We start on time and prefer to work barefoot.
