The Connection Between Words and Movement

Workshop by Ori Lenkinski

Sunday 14 May 2023, 12:00 -14:00

In this workshop, you will explore the connection between text and movement with your workshop leader, Ori Lenkinski. Through teaching sections from her existing works, you will look at how movement can support text and how text and enhance movement. Ori sees the text as conveying the information and topic of the work while the body fills in all of the emotional and mental gaps. The body is, as such, the perfect purveyor of subtext. You will explore this approach to expand the range of performative possibilities available to you in your body work.
