We will work with the following method throughout the workshop: D.D.R Desire, Demand and Receive. Desire, Demand and Receive is a method that was conceived out of a performance project called S.A.D. The process dealt with grief and sadness; and how it operates in our individual and collective bodies. What can we ask for when we grief, and what can we give?
Come ready to work with others, and we will all partake in defining and articulating the practice.
