Northrop Frye Centre, VC102, Old Vic, 91 Charles st. West

If the monologic is the predominant principle of our western institutions—are we satisfied? In this workshop we together shall rev up the possibilities of collective practice through poetics, histories of collaboration, and writing engagements. We'll move through prompts including soundtracked cinematography generation, sharing-circle exquisite corpses, and mashup remix translations. I wanna promise a lunchtime blitz of playful intensity, of gentle melding with the inner & outer languages of others.
