PERSONAL POETICS: a workshop on talking, singing, moving, performing and other matters that matter.
Over the last few years, I have been busy exploring the intersections between the voice and body, language and movement, meaning and abstraction, form and content. The workshop will place these areas of research within the context of performing, through the lens of practice. What happens first? What motivates one or the other? What are we talking and moving about? What are the possibilities? What is at stake?
February 4th // 12:30-2:30pm // $12 drop-in
Check out his showing happening on Friday Feb. 3rd at 7:30pm!

Julian’s work is deeply influenced by his performative collaborations, including Steve Paxton, Jeanine Durning, Johannes Wieland, Wally Cardona, Takahiro Yamamoto, and Benoit Lachambre as a danceWEB scholar at the Impulstanz Festival in Vienna.
