DALUYAN* is an interactive workshop rooted in storytelling through movement, writing, and performance. Through activating our bodies as receivers of ancestral memory, how can we serve our own healing journeys for transformation of self, lineage, and community? Together, we will instigate the smells, sights, sounds, and somatic sensations residing in our respective vessels and re-discover how our DNA and lived experiences assist us in remembering and recognizing our intergenerational truths - which further our envisioning for the world we dream for the future generations.
* This workshop is for BIPOC womxn + two-spirit/non-binary folks; those of Pilipinx descent are especially encouraged to attend.
( BIPOC = Black + Indigenous + People Of Color )
