In this workshop, Isabel Lewis will share ideas behind her practice with a focus on movement. No formal training of any kind is required and all adults with a curiosity about dance and other embodied practices are encouraged to attend. Lewis will introduce feminist sociologist Roslyn H. Bologh’s notion of “erotic sociability” as a form of interhuman sociality and guide a conversation about this as an alternative to the dominant 20th century relational modes of competition, conflict, and coercion. This workshop will then focus on the tuning and heightening of the senses in order to facilitate a state of hyper-presence that will be the aid towards generative and affective forms of being together. The figure of the unambitious stripper serves as a metaphor guiding us to connect with our inner worlds in order to become more radically receptive to our outer worlds.
