Teaching

 

"I believe you are both teacher and student every time you dance. Learning to experience the nuances of your body in motion can open up worlds of imagination, empathy and memory. Everything moves.

I believe we survive by learning when to hold on and when to let go. And the beauty comes from enjoying the ride..."

Sara Porter

“Everything starts as a story we tell ourselves about ourselves.”  Jeanette Winterson

Memoir & Movement 
Open Summer Sessions 2020 ZOOM


- MOVE - TALK - WRITE -

Explore your body of stories. In this memoir-focused workshop, Sara Porter leads participants through a lively series of movement improvisations, writing prompts and vocal explorations to generate different kinds of memoir material geared toward performance. Questions surrounding memory, identity, storytelling, performance and craft are explored through creative work and conversation. A thoughtful and fun approach to memoir. Artistic experience - in any discipline - is recommended.
