Performance Lab: A sustainable creative practice with Erin Pettifor

Join Erin for a sustainable creative practice lab. Explore self-care, agency, boundaries, play, safety, & connection in a supportive space.

The Lab

A sustainable creative practise w/Erin Pettifor Participants are invited to take part in an hour and a half long exchange with each other and myself. In this performance lab we will bring self care to the forefront of the explorations and discussions. Participants will engage in exercises influenced by individual internal cues, internal listening for safety, and the desire to engage/disengage with one another through play and movement. Through embodied inquiry, we will explore what feels like agency, boundary, play, safety, and connection. Peppered into the lab will be points of discussion. How do these embodied explorations relate to our evolving sense of identity as an artist? Drawing on what our needs are as individuals and artists, how can we make room for all that we are in the endeavor to pursue a creative lifestyle?

*Folks under 18 need an adult to attend with you!
