Mad Performance Creation with Lindsay Eales

June 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

This workshop introduces Mad performance creation processes that center madness as a site of generativity. For some context, when I refer to “Mad” creation, I am asking what it means to create art while considering the concept of ‘mental illness’ and mental distress as a sociopolitical issue as well as an embodied encounter. This workshop will prioritize the anti-oppressive trauma-informed movement practices of choice, consent and collaboration. We will engage with internal/external sensory and political experiences to generate movement. We will also embody resistance, retreat, reclamation and re-imagination as modes of Mad performance creation.
