Expanse Lab - Movement + Calligraphy Workshop


This workshop brings together the traditional art form of Japanese calligraphy with improvised dance, where participants embody the brushstrokes of a calligraphy piece they create. Derived from Shion’s own choreographic practice integrating calligraphy, this open-level workshop provides a fun, welcoming learning experience that generates community connection, taking intentional time to connect the mind and body.

Please wear clothes that you feel comfortable moving in; socks and masks/face coverings optional.

*Masks are encouraged but optional.
