How can a gathering be a site for new social relations? How can we build upon our own experience and knowledge to create infrastructures that support openness and experimentation through collective processes?

In this workshop, there will be time to think, observe, analyse, and find the language to discuss what it means to work with the body as a tool for sharing knowledge. Curator and educator Sepake Angiama proposes the development of a collective sensibility in relation to pedagogies of listening, moving and reading out loud, in order to expand our notions of transformation.

In what ways the stories we tell affect our attitudes and behaviours? What is the trans-generational transference that is embodied in how we move, how we relate to ourselves and to other bodies? What are the factors that enable a choreography for togetherness? A choreography of bodies figuring out new forms of relation. Relations that overlap in theory, in reading, in clubs, in the street, in the studio. Bodies that reverberate, bodies that relay a series of movements, codes and signifiers. Bodies allied in a pedagogy of togetherness.
