Body, Gender & Ritual
a workshop at Craftswoman House
Cindy Rehm will lead the workshop, Body, Gender & Ritual at Craftswoman House during the month of June. Participants will engage in an exploration of gender through the study and practice of performance art. Participants are encouraged to generate unique responses to topics of gender construction in society and will develop performances informed by ritual and the history of feminist performance. Workshop content will be presented through slide lectures, video documents, readings, and discussions. The workshop will culminate with a presentation of performances at Craftswoman House. No previous performance experience necessary. The workshop is free, but space is limited, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to enroll.
