Queer nature embodiment
16:00 - 17:30
In nature wonders never cease. In light of such things as male chimpanzees giving head to one another or transgender mosses this holds certainly true for the heteronormative onlooker. In this workshop we will immerse ourselves in imagery of all kinds of creatures to embody nature’s queerness. It will help us explore movements and move us into dancing—at times by ourselves, at other times we find our structure in contact with other bodies, using principles of contact improvisation.
