Performance Workshop w/ Artist in Residence Natasha Jozi (Lahore, Pakistan) at MAWA

  • MAWA 611 Main Street Winnipeg Canada (map)

For people of all genders; free! No performance experience necessary.  Please bring a lunch.

This workshop will take a collective and collaborative approach in which participants will approach nature as a spiritual presence, location, medium and participant in performance. Through interactive, meditative and participatory activities, participants will explore the dual relationships between human bodies, and between human bodies and nature. Activities will be based around the sounds of the nature, the feel of the natural materials, the free movement of the body in an open space, etc. The goal is to engage both materially and spiritually with the elements which we are otherwise alienated from, despite their constant presence in our daily life.

Some of the exercises will entail moving, walking and running. Please feel free to adjust or skip any activity, according to your abilities. You are welcome to participate as much or as little as you are able.

This workshop will be followed by a performance in public space on Sunday June 23, time TBA. Documentation will take place in the form of videos and photographs.
