Fall 2023: Digestive Writing Lab

October 2023

The lab will take place over two consecutive Saturdays, from 14:00-17:30

Duration: 3.5 hours

Cost: 60€ for the full workshop

Digestive Writing is returning to the movement studio, in the form of a 2-part workshop! Meeting over two weeks will open possibilities to deepen and practice the scores within your own flow: especially for those who are currently developing a piece of text or working to frame an area of research. This will be a space for individual inquiry within a larger group process.

Digestive Writing is an open movement workshop for makers and writers who wish to nourish an integration of sensation, movement, and creative work. None of the material I share requires prior movement experience, and every score is adjustable for different ranges of movement and energy levels. Each session revolves around scores that integrate body scans, gentle movement improvisation, and somatic reflective journaling.

To Register, please write me an email with a few sentences on your desires in joining the lab.

What will the lab involve?

  • Grounding in sensory awareness

  • Working in partnered movement improvisation to “shake up” thought patterns

  • Working with shifting sensation as a frame of reference in research

  • Opening space for "randomness" in writing

  • Body mapping

What might digestive writing be helpful for?

  • Sharpening existing writing tools, or supporting writer's block

  • Framing and contextualizing research in correlation with your own physical experiences

  • Using words as an anchor for re-connecting to bodily sense-making

  • Unraveling how language moves through your own body


This workshop will be limited to a small group of 8-10 people. It is warmly recommended to join both sessions. If this is not possible for you and you would still like to join, please reach out to me.
