Borders might be problematic, yet they inform so much of our existance, and our sense of placement, our sense of being. Wether you adhere to national identities or not, you can’t escape the effect they have had on you. On your relationships, on how you see the world, how you see those different from you, and even on how you understand your body.
Master Of Your Heritage Workshop proposes to explore your heritage, your language and your presence in the world, in order to create performance. Bring your own understanding of cultural identities, yourself and your own practice, and let’s work on blending them all together, celebrating them and deconstructing them to make work.
This workshop follows some of the methodologies behind the creation of POST, Xavier de Sousa’s new touring work on national identity and migration.
