The Anger Project
The Anger Project
The Anger Project investigates the multiplicitous layers of anger and the ways it manifests in the body, researches deeply ingrained and policed societal conformities intended to suppress and control anger and works towards healing these wounds through movement explorations, embodiment activities and conversation. The Anger Project is currently in the research & development phase.
During this phase the Anger Project hosts a combination of on-line and in-person gatherings that will eventually inform, and develop into, an evening length performance event. For 2022 we facilitated 12 on-line sessions, 2 off-site activities and employed 4 facilitators. For 2023 we are making plans to host more workshops, some of which will include COVID-safe in-person gatherings.
During our workshops we dance, sing, paint, draw, write, play and engage in a series of embodiment activities designed to bring us into deeper relationship with ourselves. Currently by invitation only, safety, anonymity and privacy are paramount to this work. Gatherings are small, by invitation only and sessions are not recorded. We have plans to begin recording this process with participants interested in the production phase.
