Body Politics-3

In recent news the body has become a political battleground, where the war on consent, equality, and freedom is being fought. The constant influx of stories and articles circulating on social media has acted as a trigger for many survivors of sexual violence and those who have had their boundaries violated because of their gender, sexuality, race, ability or religious beliefs. However, there are very few safe spaces for us to examine the impacts of these triggers on our own bodies and practice boundary setting in a low-risk and embodied way.

This workshop will look at how we can embody consent in these turbulent times. Using creative movement and dance as a guide, we will explore what yes/no and safe/unsafe feel like in our bodies, practice saying yes/no, both verbally and non-verbally (and know it will be heard and respected), and find ways to reclaim ownership of our bodies after boundary violations have occurred.

Here are the logistics: 

When: Saturday February 24th from 1:00-4:00pm
Where: Common People Shop, 1694 Queen St W
How much: $50

Where to buy tickets: via Eventbrite or Facebook

There is only enough space for 15 participants so be sure to get your tickets soon!
