The WOMEN AND METAMORPHOSES project will offer in July a series of body and storytelling workshops for women.


How to write with the body? How to draw from the body?

The body has memory and creativity. The body speaks. Women have many silenced stories, not told, kept and hidden in their bodies. The objective of these workshops is to give vent to this inner sea of ​​stories and sensations, working them through a form of perception and expression that goes beyond the exclusively verbal.


Individual imagination is an effective resource to bring realities closer together. Through imagination and art, we can play stories that involve trauma, fear, shame, without necessarily talking about them or reliving them.


In this workshop, we will work on drawing and text through the movement of the body. The works in various supports (drawings, text, video, photography, testimonies, essays...) that participants will produce in these workshops will be exhibited on the project's website.


Data: 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 of July at 10:00 am (São Paulo)
