CANCELED: Simone Forti Logomotion Workshop

Saturdays, Feb 22, Mar 28, Apr 26, 11 AM–2 PM


Due to uncertainty around COVID-19, the Hammer is temporarily closed to the public and this program has been canceled. For COVID-19 updates impacting the UCLA community, please visit UCLA’s Newsroom.

As part of an eight-month residency at the Hammer, Los Angeles-based artist, dancer, and choreographer Simone Forti hosts a series of intimate Logomotion Workshops that address the relationship between language and movement. Space is limited. RSVP below.

Thinking as feeling the dynamics of events.

            Finding the right word for a thought that could be said this way or                                                                                                                                            that way.

Running full out.

                                    Quietly writing in a room full of people quietly writing.

There will be generic movement warm-ups and language warm-ups such as
interviewing each other. By bringing movement and language, spoken
and written, into the same workshop, movement and language will share
the moment, hardly knowing which is which.

                        Open to all levels of experience, you will need your notebook or laptop
and comfortable clothing.
