Join us for a workshop with artist-in-residence Sebastienne Mundheim, an interdisciplinary performance maker, to help create a new performance inspired by the story of social activist, self-taught engineer, and ark-builder Kea Tawana. Sebastienne will introduce the life and work of Kea, and invite you and others into her creation process.

At this workshop, Mundheim will share some of her script-writing strategies and introduce elements of her performance research. You will also participate in a series of prompt-based writing exercises to write moments of memoir, encounters with imaginary characters, and creative responses to the work of others.

An optional second session is 5 to 8 PM on Monday, Oct. 10.

About this workshop series

This workshop is the first of a three-part interdisciplinary workshop intensive with ArtYard artist-in-residence Sebastienne Mundheim, who is creating a new performance inspired by the story of social activist, self-taught engineer, and ark-builder Kea Tawana.  Sebastienne will introduce the life and work of Kea Tawana, and invite you and others into her creation process. Workshop intensives include prompt-based writing exercises and discussion, sculpture, costume, puppet, materials-based environment-building, and movement. We will explore storytelling methods, history, materials, and movement and contribute to the creation of the May 2023 performance celebrating the life and work of Kea Tawana.  From the content generated in these workshops, we will create movement tableaus (or living pictures) and work with light, shadow, and sound discovering methods, materials, and meaning. These workshops are being offered to explore performance content, learn, build community, and have fun. Stay tuned for additional workshops in the spring.
