Movement (Visual Arts)
We will use movement and visual references to explore the space around us.
We will practice “reading” architecture, mapping space, even “drawing” emotional journeys
Using all this layers of activity, and our interactions with each other, we are then able to unearth personal narratives.
We build together, we move as one, we weave collective visual tapestries.

We will be using practical explorations with sound combined with moving in space to deepen the experience of physical integration; we will be using improvisation to enliven and broaden our understanding of the material as it applies to moving actively, individually, and in a larger group process.
20th of March
This workshop will offer explorations of creative tasks that Julie developed during the 2020 lockdowns in response to concepts of touch, texture, and tactility.
Her research evolves around ways to create contact - physically and through looking - and how to find resilience and surprising discoveries within restrictions of being home-bound.
Coming out on the other side of a pandemic, these tasks and material offer a solid starting place for new ways to think about connections, the art of touch, and how we frame all these concepts.
Expect a fun warm-up, creative challenges, and a chance to amalgamate and share these processes and any material that emerges from the tasks.
27th of March
Commedia dell'arte is the is one of the world's most venerable forms of theatre, popular from the mid-Renaissance to this day, bringing us Punch, Pierrot, Columbine, Pantaloon and Harlequin. The combination of masked and unmasked characters, carefully constructed plays and improvisation, archetypal stock characters and individual flair, all heighten the excitement of applying comedy to the foibles and pickles of human nature. We will be working with leather masks made in the traditional manner by maestro Antonio Fava.
