CONTENT // through movement, sound, introspection, communing, play… we will be experimenting with ways of letting go – loosening the choke hold dominant/normative/supremacist culture has on our making, moving and ways of being (together), to perhaps unearth other ways. maybe its just a support group for the despondent/disenfranchised artist – or just a place to commiserate, move around and holler or moan. the idea is that it will be a holistic and supportive learning environment that is easy and fun whilst being insightful and revelatory…

ACCESSIBILITY // anything i suggest can be adapted for any body, although instructions will be spoken in English.

BIO // for this context keyon gaskin is easily but not wholly described as a black, queer, irreverent performance artist who works internationally and is based in usa.
