AUTHENTICATE THIS, the workshop w/ Katie Workum

Friday-Sunday, October 13-15 // 2-5pm

$20 Single Class / $60 Full Workshop

Tickets Available Here

An immersive workshop over the course of three days, we will dive into the deep end of your own great unknown with Authentic Movement and improvisations through a scaffolded system that I have developed over the last four years with my company.  Through both mind and body investigations we will bring to light our habits and hang-ups, and the trials and joys of moving, bringing ownership over our whole selves as persons, makers, performers and witnesses.  This workshop is for anyone who wants to stop and take a breath, to look at what you have been taking for granted, to expand then release, meld feeling and knowing, separate intuition from impulse, re-assign hierarchies between expertise and honesty and to learn and be humbled by the great unknown.

About the Company: Since 2013, the company has made Authentic Movement and improvisational forms the bedrock of the work.  My current work, with long-term company members Eleanor Smith and Weena Pauly, takes form as a shifting and temporary monument to self, community and the present. We meld improvisational performance and practice together as an alternate, feminist model of working and presenting work.
