Art + Practice Workshops: DANCE with Lua Shayenne

Lua Shayenne will lead participants into her creative world where her art practice is driven by her desire to be in service of and of benefit to her surrounding community. Lua will take you on a journey through percussive movement, call and response and song. In her community and audience engagement workshops, participants draw on the power of traditional African storytelling and dance to share their own experiences and explore the mind-body-spirit connections.

This workshop will centre on the physical investigation of borderlands as sites of power, gendered space, freedom and more. There will be an opportunity to explore difficult questions such as: how do fences carved along oppressive lines, or symbols of hierarchy (like passports) affect the emotional and physical body?

“A catalyst for African dance full of creative boundless energy.” Alex Karolyi, SHADOWPATH THEATRE
