Hour Selves: Moving Into Being
Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener
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.
