Goodnight War Community Workshops
What does it mean not to make war?
What are our fears?
We will move, brainstorm, discuss, write, and create short movement eulogies for war.
Interested in a Goodnight War workshop in your community?
Our individual and societal beliefs about war and citizenship are informed by many powerful beliefs, such as religion, economics, race, and gender. Therefore, in order for this project to be a meaningful exploration about war and citizenship, I will work with various communities, with the aim of inviting diverse perspectives and experiences into the work.
Workshops aim to engage people in raising questions about our individual responsibility for our culture of war, to connect this responsibility to the idea that our everyday individual choices can create social change, and to use movement as a means of expression, connection, and discovery.
Dance will be our most significant method for exploring and expressing what is about war we find helpful/necessary/good because the movement of people with and without training is a powerful vehicle for these ideas about humanity.
We will write and discuss
around the idea that war has died and deepen our exploration of this theme in a
series of movement explorations that will end in the creation of movement
Workshop attendees who are interested are invited to participate in an evening-length performance/event titled Goodnight War that premieres this fall.
