Event Details

Fishtrap Method Workshop at MOPC’s Winter Intensive

Fishtrap Method is an adaptive methodology for building performance work and building community, developed by choreographer Paloma McGregor. Over the past eight years, McGregor has been honing myriad processes – including writing, moving, story telling, map making and breaking bread – in order to elicit personal voice and develop connective tissues between people, places and practices. The method is rooted in her father’s vanishing fishing tradition and three driving questions: What do we take with us? Leave behind? Reclaim? This workshop will give a peek into her process. Come prepared to move, write, laugh, wonder and be seen.
