Re-membering ourselves : The body as historical archive

Re-membering ourselves

W e live in a culture suffused with a multitude of ideas and images of the body that mix with our first hand experience to shape our sense of ourselves. While we often conceive of our personal history in terms of a thought or spoken linguistic narrative, in this experimental laboratory-like workshop we will attempt to uncover, include and integrate our felt sense of history in the body.

We’ll use a range of tools including authentic movement, writing tasks, storytelling and somatic movement processes as a way of gently and respectfully exploring and sharing the histories of our bodies. The work is interdisciplinary by nature and it’s not necessary to have special expertise in any of the areas in which we work.

The frame for this is to develop material that could be brought into creative processes.
