Bodies HEaRd: A Community Movement Workshop

Experimental, Class/Workshop
As we lift our voices to speak our truth, sometimes words are not enough. In this two hour workshop we will invite the language of the body into the evolving conversation about gender equality, empowerment, and the freedom to be that flourishes in an environment that is safe and respectful. Weaving together simple, guided movement improvisation with facilitated discussion, this workshop offers participants the opportunity to discover new layers of the truth they need to speak, to witness with non-judgement the truths of others, and the opportunity to discover in community how to move this new awareness forward into action. No dance experience required. All bodies welcome. PD Credit Available, to learn more about Lora Wilson Mau visit www.thegirlprojectky.org. Brought to you by Voices HEaRd: Kentucky 2018

Voices HEaRd 2018

Community Event
Voices HEaRd 2018 expands from one performance at Woodford Theatre to a full weekend of performances and events in Versailles and Lexington on February 23, 24, and 25. In collaboration with Eve Ensler’s One Billion Rising 2018 Campaign, Voices HEaRd 2018 brings together male and female performing and visual artists to raise their voices against violence against women and the many challenges girls and women of all ages face. All event proceeds will support The Girl Project and Step by Step, Lexington. Voices HEaRd director and co-founder of The Girl Project, Vanessa Becker Weig, said the vision of Voices HEaRd is “to bring the community together through art to empower, educate, and celebrate the female voice in Kentucky. Our hope is to develop into a fully produced artistic festival.” Voices HEaRd marches closer to this vision in 2018, with the addition of performances in the Lexington community at Chocolate Holler and The Barn at the Summit, a community workshop on movement led by Lora Wilson Mau DMT, the premiere of the J.U.M.P. Project documentary, and a panel discussion by gender experts at the University of Kentucky. On Saturday, February 24 at 8:00 PM and Sunday, February 25 at 2:00 PM, the mainstage Voices HEaRd 2018 performance will showcase original work from more than 20 groups and artists from across Kentucky, including Agape Theatre, The Broad Brigade, The Girl Project, Movement Continuum, Northern Kentucky University Dance, University of Kentucky Dance, Suspend Louisville, local actors Darius Fatemi, Donna Ison, Robbie Morgan, Trish Clark, and a special TBA guest artist. Tickets to the Voices HEaRd performance are $20/adult, $15/student. Lora Wilson Mau’s community workshop, Bodies HEaRd: Moving Forward Together, at 11:00 AM on Saturday, February 24 is $40 for the two-hour workshop with boxed lunch (professional development credit available). This workshop will invite the language of the body into the evolving conversation about gender equality, empowerment, and the freedom to be that flourishes in an environment that is safe and respectful. No dance experience required, and all bodies welcome. A screening of a documentary filmed by Julie Edwards about the collaboration between Step by Step and The Girl Project, Just Us Moms Performing, will be premiered along with a talkback on Saturday, February 24 at 2:00 PM.
