Tips for Trips
Participants will be introduced to five tools to help create and compose, physical movement. These tools offer a focus for creative stimulation and exploration. The goal of the exploration is to find a trip so one can develop a simultaneous subjective and objective relationship with one's self. It is my experience that these tools offer a secure way to research beyond the known to the unknown.
