Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener
Hour Selves: Moving Into Being
Géza, 306 Maujer
Inspired in part by Grada Kilomba’s concept of “becoming the subject” and the notion of activating one’s own agency through self-actualization and self-determination, dance artists Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener lead an embodied workshop and informal demonstration. Drawn from their ongoing improvisational practice, Desire Lines, this 90-minute process provides joy and rest, discursive pathways and non-hierarchical structures, collaboration and ways of self-organizing.
How can we activate aspects of ourselves that exist at the margins, at places of possibility and discovery? We tune our individual attention towards a receptive state of being for a deeper understanding of our internal landscapes and our shared, external environment. Through simple observations, spontaneous choice-making, and layering of memories, we allow emergent structures to create a collective subject.
No dance experience is required.
