Join dance artist Angie Pittman to explore sensation and impulse through movement. This 60-minute workshop will consider how the body relates to memory and history, expanding on themes in the exhibition Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme: May amnesia never kiss us on the mouth. Inspired by Abbas and Abou-Rahme’s archive of everyday people singing and dancing, we will practice movement as both individual and collective experiences.
This workshop is free and open to all, with no experience or ability required. Registration is required and capacity is limited. Please wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to join in bare feet or socks. Materials will be provided for writing exercises but you are also welcome to bring your own notebook. Seating will be available and you are encouraged to interpret all movement prompts in whatever way is best for your body.
COVID-19 vaccination and masks are strongly recommended for all visitors.
