Maximum 24 participants
Waking up our creative juices through writing, drawing, singing, stretching, using colour and connection.

In the time of Covid, I have found that my well being has been deeply supported by connecting with others and being creative in parallel. In this workshop we will move between a brief stretch, some drawing, some writing, using our voice and using colour, with moments of reflection in small groups. No prior experience of writing, art, movement or singing is needed. It is for each of us to do these practices in our own way. There is no pressure to produce anything marvellous or show it. This is simply a way to support ourselves to be creative, in the knowledge that others are making things at the same time. We will touch practices lightly, though we may wish one day to return to something we begin to create in these sessions. This is not about being an artist, it is simply about creating and how that experience can nourish us. And it is about nourishing our creativity.

En este workshop, jugaremos con diferentes herramientas creativas que nos permitirán despertrar nuestra Creatividad: Despertar neustro cuerpo elongándonos, pintando, usando nuestra voz y los colores, transitando la experiencia,en pequeños grupos de creación y reflexión, y con el grupo en general.No se necesita experiencia previa en ninguna habilidad artística. No se espera ningún resultado y por ello no hay presión para que esto se produzca..Se rtata simplemente de una forma de ayudarnos y sosternernos grupalmente, para desarrollar nuestra creatividad. Abordaremos las prácticas livianamente de manera de abrir puertas que tal vez algún día querramos retomar para crear algo a partir de lo que surgió en esta s sesiones.No se trata de ser un artista sino de ser creativos comprendiendo como el intercambio grupal puede nutrirnos. Se trata, entonces, de nutrir nuestra creatividad.

In 1999, invited by Ana Woolf, I attended the Magdalena Festival in New Zealand. I had just left treatment for bulimia,  because they had told me that it was a risk for my health to take a job as storyteller and to develop my artistic work. I took the risk, met the Magdalena Project, and it was the beginning of the rebirth of my life as an actress, musician and theater pedagogue in vulnerable communities, as a corporal and vocal researcher, and as a storyteller. This helped me to transform the diaries of my experience with bulimia into the performance Gordas, directed by Ana Woolf, which is at the heart of my new healthy artistic way.
