You are not the Boss of Me! Body Politics and Writing From the Body

VIDEO: This class will take place online via video-conferencing (Zoom).

All Levels | In this class we will write about our bodies, to our bodies, from our bodies, in defense of our bodies, for our bodies, and in honor of our bodies. Each week, students will craft and draft a solid hybrid or multi-genre piece. In week six, each student will publicly perform a choreopoem — an expression that combines poetry, dance, music and song — created in class from their combined “body pieces.” This class is open to all bodies; students should wear comfortable clothing.
