2-days workshop lab for LGBTQA

On Tuesday, August 1 and Thursday, August 3 from 11.00 am to 2.00 pm, the Finnish non-binary artist, choregrapher and performer Lin Da aka Lin Martikainen is holding a workshop lab within the frame of their 2-week LLB residency at Uferstudios.

Lin Da about the workshop: „This research is part of my ongoing choreographic process/practice that combines different disciplines, objects, sculptures, text and dance. Currently I'm especially interested in exploring with the negative spaces of mouth, navel and anus. The workshop consists of proposals for moving, touching and „connecting” with these openings of the body. I invite you to approach all the (task based) exercises with the way that is suitable for you. The workshop is intended to people who have experience and interest towards movement, dance and body based arts. Consent, curiosity and kindness are things that I wish to nurture together with the people participating in the workshop lab.“

The participation is free of charge.
You can take part both days or just on Tuesday.
The days include 15min break.
