Workshop Description

Together participants will use elements of improvised movement, voice and storytelling to create something new. Using the model of the Haitian Lakou-system, the rural communal courtyard of collective work, extended kinship, spirituality and culture, we will collapse time and space, using our own innate movements to instigate moments.

In this workshop we will learn how to channel fluid movement and breath, making our own choices from one moment to the next.  We will learn how to work in group (our own Lakou) to create collective sound and movement influence by Afro-Diaspora aesthetics.  You will write to explore personal / communal story and transfer that into movement. You will breathe.

Can be one event or a series of classes.
