This series of workshops will focus on how to transform one medium into another in an organic process. For example, one workshop can focus on all the ways we can work with the letters of our name... we can draw them in the air with our fingers, we can find letters in a magazine and collage them, we can sing them, etc. etc. it's very open! After Monique introduces the concept, she guides the participants toward their creation process which involves many "exercises" that can surprise them and open the field of possibilities. Some very specific techniques are used, especially with dance, but then much improvisation is also involved. Other workshop examples include: Making a Painting in Space with Your Body, Group Mandala Making, Making a Dance Video, and exploring "lo-fi technology." A minimum of 5-10 classes is recommended.
Please note: This is an online workshop only.
