we live in pleasurable, creative bodies that move and sound. moving towards pleasure is our natural, primal state of being. In this creative lab, we will explore all our bodies: our physical bodies as well as our emotional, spiritual and mental bodies to excavate and cultivate body knowledge. using antidisciplinary aesthetics and pleasure politics as a framework and point of entry, we will improvise movement to rock soundscapes and compose short performative erotic rituals of reawakening that invoke initiation, release, and rebirth. what is in yr creative cauldron and what things will bubble to the surface?
