This is Not an Ulpan - Menachem Begin 7, Tel Aviv,
You are invited to learn about and participate in a one of a kind queer performance workshop with Natal Igor Dobkin and TINAU!
In this workshop we will be exploring queer gender performance through the lens of imperfectionality, which rejects capitalist notions of hegemony and embraces the notion of people coming simply (and radically) as they are. We will utilize improv exercises to learn about, highlight and embrace the intersectionality of the group and our own indentities, while exploring the power structure between the performer and the viewers as witnesses.
Come as you are!: participants can be performers or non performers, queer, people interested in performing arts and sexual diversity or complete outsiders willing to dive into this fascinating world.
Time: 6:00- 9:30pm
Cost: 130 shekels
