Artistic Director Jennifer Harge will lead "black body gone," a movement workshop connected to Training Field for Protection.
This movement based workshop will investigate the possibilities of protest performance. The session aims to create a demonstration that memorializes the black bodies killed at the hands of police, while promoting an urgency of protesting rhetorics in contemporary performance. We will explore gestures, chants, short biographies and body positions associated with the victims to see how the performing body (both physically and verbally) can be used to heighten our current culture of resistance. We will "present" our research at the session's end.
