what if: experimental aerial research
This workshop will sensitively/recklessly explore, unearth, suspend and un-inhibit our individual processes of art-making, blurring the lines between live art, interactive art, aerial arts and somatic approaches.
We will consider our ever-evolving intentions and tools as artists and our internal/external awareness, playing with consciousness of how/what we communicate.
Participants will come with 2-3 minutes of choreography on an aerial apparatus. We will design a ‘what if’ co-laboratory in the safety of creating a generous, experimental and sacred environment to delve into possibilities and forbidden ideas.
