The intention for this 90min workshop is to lay the groundwork for a durational art project using our bodies and the sound making capacity of our voices by repurposing the cultural form of a Caoine (Keening) to give expression to our contemporary human predicament.
When we are inundated with messages of impending doom for species survival including our own, how do you feel? When rationality and reason have created these conditions, can a non-rational, sensory exploration divine other possibilities ? This workshop will invite participants to use their bodies to respond to these pressing questions. This is not intended as a therapy rather it is concerned with agency and what we can do with our bodies and voices together.
This early morning encounter will focus on developing areas of mutual interest and establish parameters for future workshops in Autumn/Winter 2019.
