Explore ideas of Zinzi Minott’s “Unruly Body” through this experimental guiding writing workshop, mapping out our own movement scores to think through bodily autonomy.

How would we perform if we weren’t silenced? If we weren’t forced to live in fear? If we weren’t bound by our passport or borders as they exist today?

“For bodies that cannot be ruled, are tired of being ruled, or don’t fit into the rules”, Zinzi Minott is interested in what happens when we suspend reality and use dance and movement as means to take our mind elsewhere and imagine alternate futures and ways of being.

Expanding on themes explored in Kat Anderson’s Mark of Cane and her own experiences living with, in, and through an unruly body, Zinzi will lead an experimental guided writing workshop where you will learn how to write your own movement score, exploring notions of bodily unruliness.

There will be time at the end of the writing workshop to share and perform your scores with each other if you feel comfortable doing so.

No previous writing or movement experience required. This workshop is open to anyone to attend, although those who are living a Black, PoC, or Queer life are likely to find resonance with the workshop in particular.
