Description

Workshop description:


"In the era of #MeToo womxn around the world are calling out the realities we face on a daily basis and coming together to create important changes. These conversations are powerful and necessary but they do not allow us space to heal the impacts of oppression on our bodies. In The Body Keeps The Score, Dr Bessel Van Der Kolk highlights that trauma, including everyday sexism and racism, has a huge impact on our mental, as well as physical health so it needs to be approached by working with the body, rather than the mind alone.

This workshop provides a space for people who identify as womxn to connect, get into their bodies and process feelings about living in this world as a womxn. The session will combine dance, mindfulness, interactive games and somatic exercises to release fear and anger, explore boundary setting, consent, desire and empowerment."


Artists statement:


Camille Barton is a movement artist who brings her passion for social change to life through a variety of art mediums, including dance, film and clowning. Her art practise fuses improvisation, ritual and Afrofuturism to weave new realities inspired by the creativity of the African Diaspora. Most recently Camille directed and danced in ‘Space is the Place’, a three minute Afrofuturist sci-fi film produced by Channel 4 Random Acts. In 2016, Camille produced The Sisterhood, Glastonbury festival’s first intersectional, women only venue. Camille has recently launched a workshop series fusing somatics and dance to explore issues such as sexism and racism by focusing on its impact on the body.


Camille is the founding director of the Collective Liberation Project (CLP). CLP designs educational experiences to help people understand oppression, and how it relates to their lived experience, so they can stop behaving in ways that reproduce oppression, such as racism and sexism. This work is inspired by Camille’s ongoing research into somatics and social justice: exploring how trauma from oppression is rooted in the body and how it can be healed with movement and mindfulness. CLP has worked with clients including Quakers in Britain, Release, Sisters Uncut, The University of Sussex, SOAS, The Arts Marketing Association and Sunday Assembly London.
