'Exploring Physical Sound from a D/deaf Perspective'-

A workshop with Chisato Minamimura as part of the Festival of Live Digital Art (FOLDA).

Workshop leader Chisato Minamimura draws on improvisation, movement, and her unique way of exploring sound and movement as a Deaf artist. Participants will be led through an exploration to focus and use their senses to create movements that are unique to them. The group will also investigate the importance of personal space, relationship with others, using patterns and geometric shape. This workshop is suitable for mixed abilities and will be delivered in Sign Languages (ASL and BSL) and voiced by interpreters.

This workshop is suitable for: • An independent, freelance artist, especially based in Kingston and surrounding areas; • A science and technology worker looking for new avenues of exploration; or • An arts and culture worker exploring a continued commitment to digital exploration and/or accessibility and inclusion.

This workshop is part of The StartUp, part of the Festival of Live Digital Art (FOLDA). The StartUp pass includes tickets to 6 FOLDA performance presentations.
