Chinese-Singaporean dance artist Chantel Foo is looking for West Midlands-based individuals to share a space with for a creative afternoon, to contribute to the development of a new work BRIGHT HOT R-AGE. The work explores the themes of identity, home and belonging through gestures, movements, and dialogue.
During the afternoon, Chantel will lead the group through an exploration of thoughts and feelings of rage through movement, with participants being invited to take part in the recording of sound samples.
The workshop lasts around three hours; it is divided into three sections, with a fifteen-minute break in between. In the first hour, participants will be led through an embodied visualisation exercise, followed by a facilitated sharing about rage, barriers and belonging in the second. The final section will be creating and recording sound samples (if consenting).
Chantel is especially keen to hear from members of the LGBTQIA+ communities, people with disabilities & those from the Chinese Diaspora
