Creative Workshop
In this workshop designed for all levels, participants explore the organically expanding number 15 (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 15) as they explore individual expressions of dissent to build a greater collective whole. Led by Ananya Chatterjea, artistic director of Minneapolis-based Ananya Dance Theatre, the process includes different modes of expression to inspire questions, and to ask what we find oppressive, and why. In a space that embraces varying ideas of dissent, the workshop gathers individual gestures, movement phrases and visual gestures, while exploring the way varying ideas of resistance can share, support and interact with each other to build a sustainable force for resistance and renewal.

Part of the engagement and creation of Shyamali: Sprouting Words, commissioned by KST. Participate in the ensemble’s creative process!

Presented with support from the National Performance Network’s Artist Engagement Fund.
