Who have I been, who am I now, how will I revision myself?
In this workshop, Daria will present a series of Life/Art questions for you to explore through embodied movement and art making. You will be led through the creation of self-portrait drawings that will serve as visual maps on your journey of self embodiment. Daria will guide you as you inhabit your drawings and reflect on their meaning and message using movement explorations and poetic narratives. Performative acts of healing will be invoked to inspire the recreation of new images and myths to live by. Strategic steps to bring your learnings forward into your daily life will be shared.
This workshop is open to all; no art or dance experience necessary.
