Following recent presentations in Paris, Amsterdam
and Bilbao at the end of 2017, Myriam Lefkowtiz will return to Amsterdam on 5
February 2018 to present the next session of her ongoing series of workshops.
For this session she will be joined Cécile Lavergne, and participants are asked
to bring with them a text of their choice that they consider feminist, and an
object or fabric that has interesting tactile or sound properties.
Through the Practising
Attention workshop, Myriam Lefkowitz collectively searches, invents, and
exchanges practices and ideas that address contemporary modes of attention, and
which are guided by the enquiry: What practice to be could create conditions
for our attention to shift? What practice to be could dig into the intimate
connections between perceiving and imagining, opening them as resources to
perform other forms of relationships?
In the workshop, Lefkowitz shares sensorial,
perceptive, and imaginary tools that she has developed over the years of her
practice. These tools predominantly use touch, different modes of seeing,
states between sleep and wakefulness, and silent forms of communications, which
are activated in the city and indoor spaces. Across the workshop, these
practices are opened up and mapped via the collective conversations that the
experience of them produces with the participants, and the issues that emerge
from these modified states of attention.
No prior performance training is required to
participate in the workshop, though participants should be comfortable with
relating to others through touch, as well as working in darkened spaces. The
workshop will take place within a studio space at Podium Mozaiek, Bos en
Lommerweg 191, Amsterdam. Lunch will be provided.
