What Wants to Happen?

Hannah Krafcik and I were invited to offer a movement based workshop at Creek College on Sept. 30, 2017. Creek College is a program that offers a variety of classes aimed to bridge art and environmental conservation in Portland, OR.

Workshop Description: How does discomfort with uncertainty inhibit our experience of an environment? How do socialized movement patterns create chasms of separation, foreclosing on the possibilities for our engagement with place, community, and even our own bodies? This movement-based workshop will cultivate uncertainty: What happens if we radically shift our focus? Through sensory walks, movement explorations with eyes closed, and experiments in “attending to” an environment with a redistributed hierarchy of the senses, we will begin to uncover possibilities for instant composition—the emergence of the poetic in a particular place.
