Character & Performance Workshop

January 17, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Join us for an evening of movement-based storytelling with artists Ambika Raina and Katrina Reid. Ambika  and Katrina invite you to create your own performance art piece with reusable materials from MFTA.

In this workshop, participants will use an assortment of household items from MFTA’s warehouse as prompts to create original characters and worlds. The artists will demonstrate how various fabrics can be put into motion as props and costumes.

January’s Third Thursday is organized by Benedict Nguyen, ISSUE Project Room’s 2019 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellow.
