In this participatory workshop we will explore the theoretical framework of intersectional feminism, contextualizing these concepts in our own lived experiences. Through a highly interactive process we will gain knowledge and tools for unpacking our own privilege and investigating what a truly inclusive society could be. Although the ties may not seem explicit, these concepts can directly relate to our experiences as dancers. As people within our current social context, living as fully embodied humans is in and of itself a political act, and one that is both shaped by, and works to shape the way our identities are constructed. This workshop is open to all genders, and identities, and aims to create a safe space for self reflection and structural understanding of the F word!
Please arrive early as we will start on time. Bring a notebook and pen if you like.
