[Rhizomatica #1: Inhabiting Paradox] is an [in-person], experimental, nomadic, performance residency lab led by Estrellx Supernova that centers the healing arts, choreographic excavation, and ritualistic cartographies.
Estrellx is seeking to work w/ [5-13 BIQTPOC and Allied Creatives*] who are interested in crafting performative interventions, digging into durational movement and endurance art practices, ritual, somatic installations, and having conversations around urgent, global, systemic, interpersonal issues.
Each cycle will require a minimum of (5) participants to run and will be a unique opportunity to come undone, have heart-centered dialogue, cross-pollinate between practices, beliefs, methodologies, and get creatively messy / inspired.
The intention is to cultivate and allow the force of quebrantamiento to flow through our bodies creating space for transmutation AND RENEWAL.
This container is set w/ the ethos that we are already whole and that choreographic re-designs are part of how we move forward. The intention w/ each cohort is to engender intimate constellations of care where we balance resting, moving, dreaming, awakening, [alone, and together].
WE WILL WRESTLE & MOVE W/ THE QUESTION:
How can pleasure, embodied kinetics and choreographic acts support us with co-creating a regenerative future?
Jan. 15: Estrellx hosts an IG Live (corporealidades.sutiles) Q&A about the performance lab, 10am-11am PST (will be uploaded immediately after for folks who can't make it), if you have questions you want Estrellx to respond to please email them to [email protected] w/ subject line: RRR Questions
