Community Engagement Practice

This set of practices, to be shared with a variety of communities, is designed to experientially introduce the public/participant/audience member to the process of creating I hunger for you, allowing for deeper engagement if/when they see the work, and inspiring conversation around the project’s themes. It involves a shared doing of physical prompts which open the body to sensory experience and the themes defining the piece: faith, violence, life force, and compassion. The practice involves physical and imagistic exercises that encourage an encounter with and connection to one’s body, history, memories, each other, the palpability of time passing, and the immediacy of being alive. These practices are responsive to who is in the room. Any age, race, gender, or ability can be accommodated.
