ANIKAYA Dance Theater and founder Wendy Jehlen will lead a story gathering workshop in Pittsfield with collaborators from Japan, Egypt, Benin, and the United States. With exercises that help in listening and moving together, using text, spoken language, drawing, and movement to explore themes like migration and journey from the epic storyline of the Persian literary masterpiece The Conference of the Birds, the workshop will gather stories to weave into the work of the multi-faceted, multi-lingual, and multicultural narrative. No dance experience necessary. English fluency not expected or necessary. People with all bodies, abilities, and backgrounds are invited. Free and open to all.
