This workshop will investigate the body’s relationship to form and distortion. In the spirit of softness and play we will invite expressions of unknowing, surprise, and indeterminacy into the body, exploring the edges of intention and attention. Through somatic exercises, writing, and experiments with a video camera we will take a dive into questions of agency and identity, exploring themes from my new work, The Spine Folds Far Away. Join me as we trace the inarticulate from the interior to the exterior of the flesh through embodied movement. All bodies and skill levels welcome!
 

Artist Bio

Eryn Tempest is a choreographer and movement artist currently based out of Montreal with roots in Edmonton, Alberta. She is compelled by the exploration of movement and physicality within the context of emotion and affect. Her interest in subtle energies and vibrations in the body allow her to delve deeply into a research around state, and to question the transformative and propulsive capacities of imagination and emotion. She investigates the body as a conduit, a revealing zone wherein external forces and alien intelligences are activated and given reign to express themselves. Eryn’s work has been presented by Nextfest, Expanse, Vous Êtes Ici/You Are Here, and Tangente Danse. She has received support from the Edmonton Arts Council, Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec, as well as the Canada Council for the Arts.
