In 2020, La Pocha Nostra hosts our legendary performance workshop online with sessions held once a week over 3-weeks in August. We welcome artists & activists from everywhere to participate! This year’s intensive will be instructed and produced by LPN core members Gómez-Peña, Emma Tramposch, Balitronica Gómez, La Saula & LROD.
Sessions will also include surprise guest artists and luminaries of the performance art world!!
Themes of exploration for this year’s workshop: LPN’S pedagogy focuses on the human body as a site for creation, reinvention, memory and activism. This year - in response to our immediate present - we will focus on the following themes: Artistic tools & strategies for combating systemic racism, the politics of isolation, virtual “presence”, ritual strategies to connect with humanity, notions of self and collective, cultivating community, action and activism outside of the public realm, the possibilities for presenting live art & pedagogy in the virtual.
