Embodied Writing

when 17 August 2024 - 18 August 2024
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 240

This two-day collaborative laboratory will explore writing as a political, physical and playful practice in the three-dimensional space. Using aspects of Pochinko clown technique, instant composition and the embodied poetics of Jaques Lecoq, we will ask how the body can be the author of the unknown, creating new realities in space and on the page. Participants will be guided in solo and group work through movement and visualization to write from the inner microcosm, and then engage with the human and non-human environment beyond the studio to play with the poetics of the space, asking how do we as bodies open ourselves to be written upon?

Times: 10.00-17.00 ( inclusive of a 60-minute break )
