Application for a Performance Workshop with Josefina Báez

This February, the 2024 Humanities Institute "Promiscuous Care and Performance" presents a performance fellowship opportunity for all Dartmouth Students. Applications for the fellowship are now open.

Performance Workshop with Josefina Báez

Calling all Dartmouth students who are interested in performance, movement, acting, healing, and self-care! From Tuesday 2/20 to Thursday 2/22, 2024, 4:30-6:30pm, renowned theatre artist and joy devotee Josefina Báez will give a three-day workshop on Performance Autology, a performative practice of her own design on which she gives workshops around the world.

Some of you may wish to participate in this experience but may have some financial barriers when committing to a three-day workshop. To assist students who want to participate in this extraordinary opportunity, the 2024 Humanities Institute at the Leslie Center is offering 8 competitive fellowships of $150 each. A short application, due Monday Jan 22 by 5pm, is available here.

Performance Autology is an integrative practice devised by Josefina Baez/Ay Ombe Theatre that leads the practitioner to an alert body and sound mind. These three-day workshops will help you learn how to achieve a creative practice that fuses autobiography with physical explorations to develop the experience of organicity, alertness, wellbeing, and radical joy.

Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Junot Diaz has described Báez as "a sword bathed in flame . . . a marvel." You can learn more about Báez's work here and here.

These workshops are part of the Winter 2024 Teach-In: The Arts of Care, the opening event for  the Leslie Center for the Humanities 2024 Institute, "Promiscuous Care and Performance," co-organized by Misty De Berry (NYU), Laura Edmondson, and Analola Santana.
