“Touch the cosmos, the source of our divinity, illuminating the face of the ancestors so we can see our children.” - Lemi Ponifasio
We dance at the meeting point of past and future.
We were born into a world shaped by those we call “ancestors”. Those who are born into the world that we are shaping will call us “ancestors”.
We are the living connection between the gone-before and the not-yet-born.
In this workshop we will use intuitive dance and ritual theatre to create spontaneous rituals that honour our connection to past and future generations.
We will reflect on the legacies that we have inherited: the ones that we celebrate and the ones that we struggle with.
We will consider what it is to be an intentional ancestor, to embody our wishes for those who will come after us.
Our environment, our language, our traditions and our society are all inherited. What do we want to pass on? What do we want to reshape? What are we ready to release? And what would we replace it with?
This workshop is for everyone.
No dance experience required,
all life experiences welcome.
