Drawing and Movement Workshop with Mexican artist Galia Eibenschutz

Thursday | September 26 | 6:30-8:30pm
Valencia Arts Center | Black Box Theatre
1164 W. Howard Street | Winona

We are honored to welcome Galia Eibenschutz, Mexican dance and multimedia artist, and 2019 McKnight International Choreographer to Winona Sept 26 & 27 during her fall residency in Minnesota.

Over the course of many years, Mexican movement and visual artist Galia Eibenschutz has developed experimental research regarding the possibilities of interaction between drawing and body movement. From this research she has developed a series of exercises that create links between the act of drawing and moving our bodies. During the workshop the body functions as a drawing tool and the drawing as movement notation. The workshop develops visual memory, body awareness and the notion of space-time relationships. This is a creative workshop for anyone interested in exploring the links and bridges between drawing and movement. All levels of movers are welcome. Comfortable clothes that allow movement and can get dirty are required. Immediately following the workshop will be an informal reception with the artist in the MCA lobby. Note: This workshop is geared for professional or college level dance and visual artists.

Galia Eibenschutz is a dance and multimedia artist from Mexico City whose work combines movement and drawing. Her work registers the passing of time as well as the scenic presence of the human body and its projection within architectural spaces. Learn more about Galia at galiaeibenschutz.com.
