Body mapping is an intergenerational dialogue tool helping people of different generations to talk to each other. The experience builds trust and deepens people’s understanding of how their lives are all connected with each other.

Join SVA Continuing Education for this body mapping workshop led by artistic director, choreographer and performer Anabella Lenzu, during which participants will use texts and drawings to share their own stories of their bodies. We will begin by viewing an excerpt from Lenzu’s No More Beautiful Dances—a dance-theater piece using spoken word and drawings to tell a personal vision of femininity and what it means to be a woman today. The performance also challenges the viewer to think about how they view bodies. Through discussion and participation, we will develop fresh insights, find new directions and explore identity and social relationships. RSVP here.

Suggested: Before the workshop please be prepared with paper to draw on (the bigger the better), crayons and drawing implements. Comfortable clothes that allow movement are recommended.

Note: All events listed on sva.edu/events are in Eastern Time (ET).

Free and open to the public
