Feralpy Workshops and Performances
August 6 @ 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm
12pm-2pm: Listening With, with Grace Woodard
In this workshop we will connect to our bodies, the environment, and one another through listening, sounding, and moving. We’ll explore a series of site-specific scores developed to guide participants through embodied listening and creative collaboration — listening and responding to the inner as well as the outer world. By practicing these non-verbal modes of care and conversation with self and other, we aim to cultivate a sense of presence and shared resonance.

An interactive installation that aims to cultivate cultural intimacy through intersectional decolonization practices, Tree+Oyster create ritual loops to stoke embodied memory and resist historical erasure. Through myth making and tool use, they facilitate small groups in building bridges from land to sea, imagining sustainable ecologies.
With the aim to cultivate space for collective trust and shared dreaming, Tree+Oyster arrive with non verbal communication and play to shed anthropocentric perspective and facilitate opportunities for emergent ritual.
Tree+Oyster merge archipelagic Indigenous mythologies from the Dominican Republic and the Philippines in order to stoke memory, resist erasure, and generate new mythologies. With curiosity to discover cross-cultural parallels in land-water relationship between Indigenous communities and their own personal decolonization research, T+O engage in immersive research deepening their relationship to land and community. From this foundation, they facilitate creative gatherings bridging inner and outer ecologies — a practice in tuning our personal, communal, and digital relationship to the landscape.
Site-specific gatherings consist of co-creation exercises and games, sensorial ceremonies, body mapping, collective altar building, and musical forest jams. Seasonal elements, i.e. sand, soil, and vegetation, inform the location and structure of interactive installations. These onsite activations create a generative mediated space for communal storytelling. Rooted in the study of Indigenous histories, local-to-global community, and ecology, Tree+Oyster aim to build a cross-cultural campfire generating warmth, in empathetic pursuit of sustainability.
4pm-6pm: “Bring Your Own Brat” Workshop with Sacha Vega
“Bring Your Own Brat” stems from the craving to perform a tantrum in the face of conditioned modes of being, moving, and seeing. The workshop is facilitated by Sacha Vega and is part of ongoing studio experiments in expressions of personal needs. Through a series of shared movement exercises and writing prompts we will explore the archetype of the brat as a means to probe at moralized choreographies in our lives. Whether your brat emerges through foot stomping, vocal exclamation, a written decree, or total refusal – all are welcome. No previous dance or performance experience necessary.
