PLEASURE BODY (workshop) | Giorgia Ohanesian Nardin

In their interdisciplinary art and research, artist and queer agitator Giorgia Ohanesian Nardin focuses on pleasure as a form of resistance to systematic oppression. Of Armenian descent, Ohanesian Nardin’s work looks at hostile architectures, survival strategies, sensuality and healing. The two-day Pleasure Body workshop offers training in and conversations about rest and pleasure. It acknowledges the frictions and multiplicities these words carry. Looking at somatic practices from a transfeminist approach, the workshop challenges the language around labour of care and healing. Giorgia will interlace their somatic studies as a mover with SWANA* body practices. Specifically the traditions of movement that bring attention to the pelvis, hips and ass.

Want to join? Please send a few lines about your desire to participate before November 15 to: workshop@whatyouseefestival.nl.

* SWANA is a decolonial proposition to refer to South West Asia and North Africa, instead of Middle East
** Black, Queer, Trans, Indigenous, People of Color

Agitation for me is a state of possibility, it requires and brings movement and vibration. I am interested in this friction. For me, holding space
is about allowing the possibility for agitation to manifest, to be
to be a generative collective experience.
