General Description: 

“We could plant fruit trees – journaling in dance and playing with archival processes”

How does our body remember, transmit and transform ideas?  How does movement help us process stories and what stories live within our movement?  How do we remember ephemeral moments?  How do we allow memories and traumas to resurface in a safe way?  Why is archiving important?  Why is archiving so dang hard!?


These are some questions that have come up for me in my process of journaling, recording, archiving, and remembering.  The questions I posed go deep but in this workshop we will be more so focused on ways in which dancers, but also all performance artists, can practice ways of archiving in what often feels like ephemeral art making. The workshop will discuss many different forms of archiving, how to do it in a way that feels manageable, along with when and how it might be useful.  We will dance. We will write. We will snack. We will talk... Probably in that order.
