THE GRID [a workshop]

with lemonTree creations

Indrit Kasapi of lemonTree leads dance and theatre artists through lemonTree’s creation process ‘the grid,’ based on viewpoints.

The Grid is a creation process that lemonTree creations has been using to generate their material for several of their productions including MSM [men seeking men]. Indrit Kasapi (Artistic Producer) derived this process of creation from Viewpoints by Anne Bogart. The Grid takes its name from the most basic principle of the process, which is that the participants are asked to move around the space through an imaginary grid. Several other elements are introduced during the workshop that attempt to allow the participants to create from a more instinctual place rather than intellectual. This physical and vocal exploration opens the door to a way of generating material for performance makers that is not overly thought or analyzed but rather is raw, guttural and often hard to explain.

The workshop is ideal for performers who have experience with movement (dancers, movers, physical performers etc). However, all levels are welcome.

Bursaries are available for participants who need them. Please contact Kimberly Sayson for more information.

QAF takes place on the traditional, unceded territory of the Coast Salish people, in particular the xʷməθkwəy̓ə

m (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwəta? (Tsleil-Waututh) nations. We recognize their sovereignty, as there are no treaties on these lands, and we are dedicated to building a new relationship between our nations based on respect and consent.
