EARTH at ONCA: earthBODYment with Bronwyn Preece
1 April 2016 Free
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
ONCA is delighted to welcome Canada-based performance practitioner Bronwyn Preece to the gallery to lead an earthBODYment workshop within Chris Drury’s EARTH exhibition.
Workshop participants will creatively respond to EARTH, collaborating through a variety of improvised embodied means to interact with the show in the gallery. Be ready for solo and whole group movement, sound, language, collaborative writing, music, and other creative experimentation inspired by EARTH.
The workshop is free and open to everyone: all ages, ability and mobility levels are welcome. No previous experience required. Each participant is asked to bring along a small amount of earth/soil/clay.
Artist biography: Bronwyn is a boundary-pushing improvisational, site-sensitive performer and theatre practitioner, author and poet, walking and visual eARThist. She is the pioneer of earthBODYment, a form of site-specific deep improvisation and exploratory engagement. She lives off-grid on a remote island off the west coast of Canada. She studied with Master American Improvisor Ruth Zaporah for more than 17 years, and became Canada’s first certified teacher of Action Theater™. She recently co-edited a special edition of Performing Ethos, titled ‘Performing Ecos’ — an international examination of the field of performance and ecology.
This event will be BSL interpreted.
