Stories from the Inside Out
Workshop led by Annabelle F. Coote
Dance Studio, Daniel Arts Center, Bard College at Simon’s Rock, 7 p.m.

All women have stories. Every day is full of them. The mundane, the exciting, the quietly surprising, the kind that storm in and take over. Our stories live inside of us, in our bodies. In this interactive workshop, we will use movement and other creative arts to connect with our bodies’ wisdom and explore our stories, giving them depth and richness. We will move between writing and other expressive modalities with the goal of creating a piece of poetry or prose. Our time together will culminate in a reading for those who wish to share. No prior writing, arts, or movement experience necessary.
