MINDFULNESS IN MOTION – I AM HERE Performance Workshop by Lisa Barker

The I AM HERE performance workshop offers support and structure for developing solos, duets and group pieces around the themes of “Belonging”. The 10 week workshop culminates with a public showing consisting of spoken word, movement, and performance art which will be presented at The Culture House, in Grass Valley. on June 6th and 9th.

During the workshop, each participant will be guided in a creation of their own solo piece based on their personal life experiences, stories, and passions. Through Lisa’s guidance, the solos will be interwoven into a collective tapestry: a performance that will move us beyond superficiality to evoke a visceral, heartfelt experience for performers and audience alike.

This community workshop is open to all the arts- all levels- all ages- all genders. Join in and hone in on your performance skills in this supportive, inquisitive space.

About the Author Ruth Chase

My work documents the human spirit and the powerful insights that allow people to find a sense of belonging within their community. The public plays a vital role in the outcome of my work, taking a journey with me that can last up to two years. I produce multi-media installations that include paintings, audio, social media, slideshows, video, and social engagement. Self-aware subjects with strong belief systems fascinate me and draw me in.
