We move to de-contain. We move to re-member and forget. Our bodies are containment of noises and silences of our memories that are constantly affecting how we live our lives now. This workshop explores our unshared, untold stories through embodiment. It is a practice to give voices to our muted memories. Using both writing and moving as forms of embodiment, we will break and un-break our silence through bodily thinking with the question “How can we use words as we use movement?” Our bodies speak louder than words, but as we search for words and inscriptions to “match” what our bodies have spoken, it can become performative writing. We will use writing as a treasure hunter of dance and silence. This class will start with a silent warm-up leading into improvisation and composition. We will explore several layers and dimensions of silence in and outside of our bodies. There will be showing of our materials utilizing what we created-both individually and collectively. The showing as a practice of sharing/caring will have both aspects of page and stage (meaning a printed booklet/journal and a performance at the end of the workshop).
