“all that you touch”: a collective self and material study

Part of the something soft event series

Please note: masks are required and will be available at the door. Please stay home if you are experiencing symptoms or were exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

Workshop with Jah Elyse Sayers

Beginning with somatic centering in four dimensions, we will enter embodied listening and communication with discarded and found materials, which we’ll repurpose into movement partners and sculpture, together, muddying the boundaries between sculpture and movement practice. And mud becomes clay. We follow black aliveness, as put forth by Kevin Quashie, and Octavia Butler’s adage that “The only lasting truth is change,” to invite participants to reach and feel inside and outside of the individuated body in order to shape and be shaped as acting, relational, and lasting beings.
