SOAPBOX // Creative Performance Workshop |ˈsōpˌbäks| Atölye-Performans SPACE DEBRIS
24  – 26 April, 2015

Soapbox is a Creative Movement workshop-to-performance series whose name evokes the impromptu stages of 19th century soap-crate speeches, where wooden export crates became platforms for performative expressions and social dialog.This workshop uses movement to create a meeting place to explore how we as individuals use our bodies to express ideas and connect with people around us. We will question verbally and nonverbally what individual and social movement is, how we listen and communicate with each other, and create change in the world.

Suited to all levels of experience, this three day workshop will guide participants through meditations, qigong, improvisation, partnering, and authentic movement. We will employ these movement practices before entering into moderated discussions concerned with social movement, performance and protest, expression, and communication. We will invite participants to create a final outdoor impromptu performance.

Each day will begin with movement lead by Coco Karol and Azmi Mert Erdem and continue with dialog facilitated by Zeynep Kocaoğlu. The Soapbox workshop will turn the Space Debris (Karaköy) into a sacred playful movement laboratory with sounds by Seyhan Musaoglu.
