About the Workshop:
Home/Body, Home/Land is a three-day, site specific performance workshop held in partnership with and on the traditional territories of the Métis, Anishinaabe and Cree communities in Manitoba. Through our work we will explore the histories of the land we are on, creating interconnections and linkages between the land and the body through movement and physical interactions with the land and one another. We will facilitate creating relationship to the land by allowing our bodies to tap into the histories of the site and observing the cycles, changes, and movements of the land we are on, building a mimetic series of gestures that reflect the environment and embrace the land as teacher and guide.
*As lunch is provided, when registering for the workshop, please indicate any dietary restrictions. Please also include any access needs that you have as well as transportation resources and requirements, ie. access to a vehicle and how many seats, or if needing a ride.
Jaime Black is a multidisciplinary artist of Anishinaabe, Métis and European descent. Black’s art practice engages in themes of memory, identity, place and resistance and is grounded in an understanding of the body and the land as sources of cultural and spiritual knowledge.
YLDE thanks Winnipeg Arts Council, Manitoba Arts Council, and Canada Council for the Arts for their continued funding support, thank you also to this workshop’s partners Jérôme Marchildon & Angela Fey!
