BOUNCING NARRATIVES is an interdisciplinary collaboration between the performance artist Shahrzad Malekian (MAPS1), the choreographer Roza Moshtaghi (graduated 2017) and Schouskollektivet. With the main focus on “embodiment of (trauma) narrative”, this workshop will create a participatory space for sharing collective experience and knowledge through performance art, dance, and rituals.

Through a dialogue between movement and space, we will investigate representing the parts of memory that the narrator is not able to express in words, and instead communicates through physical expressions/gestures. We aim to give an aesthetic voice to the unspeakable and translate it into a collective physical/visual experience.

Based on an agreement with participators and their interest, the workshop could have a collective performance as an outcome. The result will be a show at the end of the workshop and is open to everyone.
