A two-part workshop with Jaz-FairyJ
Saturday, October 5th, 2019—2:30pm
1) Expand Play Surrender
With the use of Improvisational games, task based movement and writing exercises, talking/storytelling, and sounding, participants are encouraged to relish in the magic and energy of spontaneity by trusting their intuitive flow and physically moving energy and embodying emotion. An invitation to be expansive, playful and find deep pleasure in the surrender of the body to itself.
2) Carnival systems as creative activation, healing, and meditation
Drawing inspiration from Caribbean Carnival traditions, I am curious about the use of effective and purposeful repetition (riddim/movement/sounding) and using this practice as a way of absorbing our individual, communal, and ancestral healing energy. How can this energy then be used to activate our creative flow; making space to download (listen), process (digest), reload (activate/prepare), manifest (create/do). I am interested in distilling the energy and vibe of such traditions, bring them into a “non-carnival” space and observe how they activate the bodies, the space and the creative flow.
