    Community Workshop: Grounding our Movement with Laís Rosa (Brazil)

    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    Join us for a FREE one-off workshop on grounding your movements with visiting international artist Laís Rosa (Brazil).

    Based on the cyclical movement between the actions of standing, walking, rolling, stumbling, falling, crawling and lying on the ground, this workshop seeks to build a closer relationship with the ground beneath our feet, and with our origins.

    Laís will guide participants to build awareness of their bodies in relationship with the space, as well as investigating how telling our stories is a way of rooting our presence in the world.

    All experience levels are welcome, ages 18 and over.

    If you'd like to support ActNow with a donation we've made the option available to you at the check out. All donations $2 and over are fully tax-deductible.

    Laís Rosa (she/her) is a Brazilian art-educator and performance artist with a background in dance, linguistics and art in the public sphere. She is the granddaughter of Therezinha and the daughter of Geni and Vlademir. Her interests lie in the intersection between body awareness, storytelling, and the construction of learning environments as a way to decolonize art and education.

    Laís graduated as a dancer and educator from the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP, Brazil) in 2018, with research scholarships; and obtained an MA in Visual Arts with distinction from the Valais School of Art (EDHEA, Switzerland) in 2022. On this occasion, she was awarded with a prize from Fondation Bea pour Jeunes Artistes and a research grant from Fondation Opale. The latter, together with EDHEA, is supporting her artistic residency in Australia between March and June 2024.
