Escribir la voz del cuerpo/Brainlingo: Writing The Voice
of the Body with Edwin Torres
Writers are creatures of awareness, receptive beings that embody transition. As writers, how can we allow the creative process to align our naturally trilingual voice, our speaking-seeing-hearing voice, with the humanity that defines us? Using performance, movement and sensory exercises, this workshop will be structured as a creative laboratory that will explore how we communicate by exercising the languages inside us, finding where the senses meet, and where the process of writing can begin.
Escribiendo el bosque/Writing
