Project Title: There is Only Language Between Us
Project Description: Le'Andra LeSeur explores healing within absence, gestural language, and repetitive actions. As a black queer woman, visual and sonic fragments become a transcending element that connects identities affected by regulated systems of oppression. LeSeur’s project There is Only Language Between Us will host a community spoken-word and stream of consciousness writing workshop to compose a final sound piece.
How to Participate:
"There is only language between us (Workshop)"
@ Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning, 161-04 Jamaica Ave
Thursday, 5/13, 6-8pm
Join artist Le'Andra LeSeur for a Covid-friendly, in-person workshop using language to connect and build community. In this workshop, participants will answer a writing prompt in response to audio sourced from Jamaica Ave by the artist. From there, participants will be given specific writing tools to break down their own responses to create a poetic rhythm of words to be spoken out loud at the end of the workshop. These poems will be recorded and used for a full sound installation set to open in June of this year!
