Join artist Kayla Hamilton for a virtual talk and movement exploration workshop in conjunction with the exhibition Carolyn Lazard: Long Take. Centering the untold stories of BIPOC disabled creatives, Hamilton uses a combination of release technique and traditional West African dance from Guinea and Mali to expand on themes at the intersection of race and disability. She uses audio description as an integral part of both her creative process and final piece.
For this workshop, Hamilton shares more about her work and invites you to come closer through a series of guided movement prompts that are integral to her choreographic process. The workshop is open to 40 participants, and no formal dance experience is needed.
This event will be held live on Zoom. Please register here.
