Nudos

This workshop led by Johanna Castillo and Jen Rose took place in February of 2019 in Espacio Morillo.

“Our world should run with genuine trust, but right now our world is unfortunately running with very dusty trust issues. Sometimes we trust each other, sometimes we don’t, because our intentions are not always clear. We wanted to reinforce that trust with each other, by creating a series of movement dynamics to let go of our fear of the “other” and trust them with eyes closed.” Johanna Castillo

“We put our trust and our vision in our partners, our friends, to lead us and walk, run and spin us through the space. Johanna constructed a labyrinth of fabric across the space while we researched the texture of our interiors and the weight of our bones and blood to understand the package of this body we carry daily.” – Jen Rose
