My Intimate Companion ~ My Body, is a 9-week artistic conversation, exploration, creative collaboration and presentation workshop. Attendees will be exploring and expressing the inner landscape of their body using stories, movements and images to craft a performance piece.
The workshop, which begins March 14, invites all participants to engage in creative activities and to collectively design a presentation for our community. This two-fold approach serves as a doorway to personal discovery.
“Whether we realize it or not, an on-going never ending conversation is chattering away inside each of us about our bodies,” says CCP Artistic Director Barrie Barton. “Too much of this, too little of that, how do I look and I want that instead of this.”
Barton explains, “The CCP creative process is to harness the unspoken, the hidden, the unshared and the taboo and transform it into the spoken, seen and expressed actions through the container of creativity, performance and community. “
My Intimate Companion ~ My Body workshop culminates with a community-based movement-theater piece to be performed on Sunday, May 15.
