Burning our worries: an icebreaker and art making prep activity for the beginning of a workshop

WE ARE ALIVE AT THE SAME TIME

in Marseille 2019

Taking back our attention and re-focusing: In this workshop with the class of Professor Katharina Schmidt, we created performative, visual, and olfactory circumstances to help selectively focus our artistic awareness and intentions.

Through semi-improvisatory performance-type group activities, we created a safe collaborating space and boosted enthusiasm for participating in the collective project.

We also experienced how ritual art making activities can be explored and invented in order to address a wide range of specific obstacles to art making and  to find new ways for working through ideas.
