Workshop with Gerard Reyes
Life is the opportunity for pleasure, but shame and guilt close us down. Voguing and stripping* can re-open us up. These two gendered dance techniques form the core of my solo "The Principle of Pleasure". Through studying these dances I discovered non-normative ways of thinking about gender, sexuality, pleasure and intimacy. In this 3-day workshop I will guide you technically, imaginatively and somatically through both dance styles. We will take on and discard various gendered behaviour in order to find and express untapped areas of our personalities. You will be encouraged to reach beyond your perceived physical and mental limits. Come with an open mind and leave with a freer body!
*here 'stripping' is intended to mean the dance form, rather than the act of getting naked
In the frame of Open Spaces#2-2016 Gerard Reyes presents the performance and premiere "The Principle of Pleasure".
