Sediment Lab:

Studies in Movement, Memory and Future

Sediment Lab is an interdisciplinary workshop laboratory integrating performance, writing, drawing and dance. Centering movement and the body, the workshop integrates composition, improvisation and playwriting tools to investigate the complex terrain of current-day Chile and the US. Through collective creation games that generate historical and current connection-making, we will delve into collective creation techniques we’ve been developing in our dance theater work Sedimento, currently in progress. What role does the body play in recent sociopolitical processes? What is most urgent to me in my present moment–what are my stakes in it, and how do we imagine the future?

The workshop will be facilitated by the co-directors of the Sedimento collective David Legue, dancer and performer; Cristóbal Racordon, artist, dancer and art educator, both from Valparaíso; and Eryn Rosenthal, US dancer, choreographer and playwright.

🐚

All bodies and abilities welcome. This workshop is open and appropriate for anyone interested in the subject matter.

🌱

The week before the workshop, we recommend writing down your dreams when you wake up. Please also bring 4-5 objects that represent the estallido and Constitutional processes for you.
