About the workshop: Drawing from a long tradition of artists that identify and transform language on all levels, this writing intensive series explores how memory, images, emotion and stories live in the body. A focus on writing for performance though no acting or performance experience is necessary. Open to artists of all experiences and disciplines. Dress comfortably. Bring several pens and a new journal.
