This workshop is open to people with various arts backgrounds, as well as those without a dance background. The focus of the Dance as Identity workshop is to present dancers with an opportunity to use dance as a platform for generating and exploring dialogue about gender and sexuality. Conversations sway between the social and political, stereotypical and biased, and that which is private and present. Humanities, literature, media, film, history, cultural theory, visual art and philosophy all play a role in the discourse and the most compelling project is considering these culturally identifying relationships with movement. This workshop is first and foremost safe and educational. A vow of confidentiality must be understood and taken seriously. The workshop will include improve based imagery and small movement tasks, the ideal workshop participant is open to moving, but does not need to have an extensive dance background.

This workshop is offered in partnership with Harbourfront Centre and features artists from the World Stage 2014 performance The Radio Show.
