About the Workshop:

There is often a battle between head and body. We can create an awareness of this struggle, we can reconstruct this bridge. There are multiple ways to describe one’s experience, to define activity, recharacterize and bring meaning. This work encourages participants to find language in as specific a way as possible, to translate imagination into the body, pay attention to one’s derivations and adaptations. If a participant is generally intuitive, they may need to reflect, to shake it up, to do the opposite. Recognize and name one’s patterns so that they can work against them and grow.

About Emma Plotkin:

I am a theatermaker - a movement director and performer. Wholeness is found in the near/far view - seeing softly, broadly and then examining the detail. I follow the joy of physical theatre, immersive, devising and space-based work. Yet, it is not only joy but the desire for meaning, connection and understanding that drives my practice. This is why I do not just study technique but context. As a Fellow for the Future of Arts and Culture with the Ford Foundation, I’ve investigated arts funding, emerging artists, privilege among the arts, community impact and the pedagogy of failure. Art has always been vital, it is a fundamental part of living and an expression of the spirit. So how do we allow ourselves to develop, to connect and to be more in tune with the world?
