Join poet Rickey Laurentiis and choreographer Maree ReMalia for a writing and movement workshop among Deana Lawson’s photographs. Organized in collaboration with the Center for African American Poetry and Poetics at the University of Pittsburgh.
Laurentiis and ReMalia guide participants through braided exercises in poetry and dance, all in conversation with the photography of Deana Lawson. Participants will explore how the lyric and authentic movement address “fictions of the body” versus “poetics of the flesh.” Attendees will consider how notions of the gaze intersect with injury and with care, and how all of this plays out in contemporary understandings of identity, representation, and agency.
Space is limi...ted — registration required to this free workshop.
