Our bodies know so much more than we imagine. From skills like riding a bicycle, playing violin, or typing we are familiar with the concept of muscle memory – a subconscious carrying forward of something one has previously rehearsed. So how are our everyday lives this same kind of rehearsal? When I make my grandmother’s toffee bars, is it not both an act of remembering and an embodying her legacy for the future.
No performance training necessary, just a playful interest in the poetry of our everyday lives. Participants will be introduced to the activity of miming as a way to pay attention to how our bodies carry our history and cultural legacy.
A Workshop on Making and Remembering is held in conjunction with the current exhibition Ground Floor.
Led by artist, Hannah Barco, this two hour workshop is family friendly and open to all ages and skill levels.
