G634 Haven Hall

LACS and Latina/o Studies cordially invite you to “Escritura Acto" Workshop with Puerto Rican artist Aravind Enrique Adyanthaya. "Escritura acto" is a form of theatrical poetics that explores the staging of the act of writing. Its setting is based on letting the spectators view the contents of what is written through a video projection of the document as it is being produced in the computer. This mode of representation examines relationships between the writer and the written, the medium and the message, the audience/spectators and oral and written perceptions. It also works to performatively explore notions of language hybridization and belonging in different cultural contexts. Automatic writing and contact improvisation principles will also be presented in the context of escritura acto. Some of the exercises will take the form of brief unipersonal and group pieces performed by the participants. Participants can work in any language they choose.
This workshop has a limited capacity of 12 people. To register please contact Lawrence LaFountain-Stokes at This event is being co-sponsored by Arts at Michigan/Course Connections, the Center for World Performance Studies, Romance Languages and Literatures, and the School of Art and Design.
