Decolonized Movement Research
Date & Time
Thursday, January 27, 2022, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Organized by Annielille “Ani” Gavino (she/they/siya), Artistic Director, Ani/MalayaWorks

E Fajardo Canlas (they/them), Artist

This session is about breaking out of the shapes, rhythms, directionality, and levels that the Western canon has imposed upon us. These unnatural movement patterns are paired with colonization + assimilation + adaptation + survival = accumulated and unaddressed traumas. This offering is an invitation to unpack and dig into embodied memory. Filipinx movement artists and cultural researchers Ani Gavino and E Fajardo Canlas will lead participants through a blend of martial arts, dace, reflection through journaling, and exploration through movement and discourse.

Auto captions can be enabled during this session. This session will be recorded.
