Performative Compositions: How to create an umbrella
February 16 @ 14:00 - 17:00
Are you coming with me under my umbrella?
Join us for the next installment of A Walk in LePARC with multidisciplinary artist Patricia Ragazzon, on February 16, 2023, from 2-5 PM.
In her doctoral research on embodied learning as a pedagogical process, Patricia Ragazzon develops the concept of “performative compositions” as modes of creation with different groups, bodies and perception. This hands-on workshop is an invitation to rally and construct knowledge together with other modes of existence and (neuro)diversities. From personal experience teaching various groups in theater workshops, Ragazzon has formed performative compositions for sensitive experience, processuality and relational practice. She proposes an environment for improvisation from principles of movement, materialities and space, listening and embodiment–a space-between the invention of self and the creation of other possible worlds. All are welcome. Come with comfortable clothes. If possible, bring fabrics, threads, scissors and old or damaged umbrellas.
Patricia Ragazzon is an actress, performer, director, researcher and theater teacher. She is an Academic visitor at Concordia University and a Doutoranda of the Performing Arts Program of the University of Bahia – BRAZIL.
