Body and Language

In this studio course open to all, we will dive into experiences in which body and language meet. We’ll think about these from aesthetic, cultural, political, medical, personal, and philosophical perspectives. We’ll explore language from, in, around, and about (our) bodies. We’ll question hierarchies between body and language, use embodied approaches to examine pressing issues of our time. We’ll play with the physicality of voice and the material qualities of words and sentences. We’ll find literary structures in movement. We’ll move and create together with tools from dance, theater, visual art, improvisation, writing, and somatic practices.
