Time to Talk - Shedding Workshop with Mikaila Ware 3/22-3/23 (Sliding Scale)
As a part of Davalois Fearon Dance's Time to Talk Initiative, this two-day workshop facilitated by Mikaila Ware and guest artists explores shedding as a gateway to discovery and authenticity. Centering BIPOC women+ identifying emerging artists, our time together will be spent exploring what it means to shed as a form of decolonizing the body, expanding ranges, and archiving discoveries. The workshop will take place via zoom on March 22nd and 23rd between 12:00pm and 4:00pm EST. More details below.
