Work­shop: Cha­rac­ter buil­ding for Earth­ly Sur­vi­val

Hel­lo love­ly crea­tures, I am orga­ni­s­ing a sweet outer­world­ly work­shop and would like to invi­te u to:

Cha­rac­ter buil­ding for Earth­ly Sur­vi­val – Work­shop at film­Ar­che 16.03. & 17.03.24 – crea­te your own drag cha­rac­ter!

“Inspi­red by trans/​feminist lite­ra­tu­re and the mind of Don­na Hara­way, we will first dive into a few key con­cepts like mons­tro­si­ty, inter­sec­tion­a­li­ty, repre­sen­ta­ti­on, meta­phors, (in)visibility… And ima­gi­ne why cha­rac­ter-buil­ding can be a tool for earth­ly sur­vi­val. The second day, joi­n­ed by drag artist Hassan­dra, we con­ti­nue by craf­ting our very own alter ego through exer­ci­s­es wri­ting, sto­rytel­ling and move­ment. After­wards, we mate­ria­li­se our cha­rac­ters by crea­ting a distinct look, com­bi­ned with an intro­duc­tion to self-made pro­sthe­tics and drag. Enga­ging with alter egos can help to over­co­me per­so­nal fears, bina­ry struc­tures, and socie­tal norms. They can be human or non-human, gro­tes­que or mode­st, fan­ta­sti­cal or earth­ly; crea­tures, cyborgs, cryp­tids… Wha­te­ver the heart desi­res.”
