A text weaving workshop focused on process as a continuous action of reality-making. BIPOC’s narratives around our experience are often denied, erased, brushed off and countered with "data, records, documentation’’ upheld by white western narratives. This workshop aims to shift the focus by centering BIPOC voices, bringing the invisible (thoughts, healing, experience, feelings, ancestral knowledge) forward while highlighting its importance and power. A mix of writing, performance sharing and discussion.
Anne-Audrey Remarais is a creator, mostly using multidisciplinary performance to express what sprouts from within, pulling the invisible and mundane to the surface. With a curiosity to explore and combine various mediums, she aims to create process-based art confronting blackness, memory, healing, ancestral knowledge, identity, and home. This led to her creating the platform I WOC UP LIKE DIS to dig into healing while enabling dialogue with her communities.

This 7th edition seeks to explore the emotional, physical, mental and socio-political ramifications of what it means to shift focus and/or (re)gain control. How might we understand shifting focus, on which scale, and in which ways? Through which mediums and interventions? What is it to (re)gain control of one’s narrative, body and/or psychic space? Which new realities can be created or remade? See the full programming here.
