Our stories and our bodies reveal our deepest humanity, power, and joy. Reconnect with your authenticity and selfhood in a powerful workshop led by master teacher and theatrical jazz artist Omi Osun Joni L. Jones. Through movement, truth-telling, and collaboration, this workshop explores the themes of vulnerability, life challenges, embodied stories, family history, and intention. This workshop is open to anyone interested in opening themselves and exploring artmaking as strategies for social change—you need not be an artist to participate!
In this workshop participants will be asked to—
- Engage in an improvisational process
- Give voice to and embody their personal identities/culture(s)/memory/family/
- history/socio-political reality/dreams
- Create and embody art
- Explore the relationship between art and their lives
- Learn from their bodies
- Consider the relationship between spirit, art, healing, and service
- Share their work with others
Participants should bring writing materials (paper and pen/pencil), and dress comfortably for easy movement.
