Join us in a FREE poetry and movement workshop that encourages participants to explore their personal story through the themes of 'home, culture and place.'
As the Regina Klenjoski Dance Company prepares for the West Coast premiere of "Far From Home,” the company has received two grants to work with the community and give participants a space to reflect on their journey IN or TO America through poetry writing and creative movement. These workshops are a community art-making opportunity that will bring together immigrants and non-immigrants from the South Bay to reflect, imagine and create.
Celebrated Los Angeles poet therapist Jennie Linthorst will guide participants in writing poetry about the places, people, food, objects, and experiences they associate within the larger theme of home. After leading simple warm-up exercises designed for participants of all abilities, Regina Klenjoski and dancers from RKDC will help participants discover physical expressions of their poetry as they share their process in creating work. The workshop culminates in a reflective discussion.
All ages, races, nationalities, and abilities are welcome. No experience in poetry or dance is necessary -- just bring a curiosity to reflect upon your story, courage to share with others, and willingness to join in a collective human experience.
Regina Klenjoski Dance Company is dedicated to nurturing the creative and collective power of our surrounding communities. We invite you to experience the unifying force of art in our world and know first-hand the compassion and empathy that art can foster.
