Performance artists Celestina Billington and Brittani Broussard present Impulse, a workshop demonstrating how to find inspiration for performative practice. Participants will engage in exercises that encourage expression through movement and mark making. Provided tools for discovery will include objects, fabrics, phrases, drawings, and words. The workshop space provides a locus for the development of original performance skill sets.
Celestina Billington is an interdisciplinary artist and writer from Houston. She collaborates on various projects, including performance theater, writing for local newspapers, and zine-crafting.
Brittani Broussard is a multidisciplinary artist based in Houston. Her work explores themes that alter the figure using the language of costuming, masking, movement and dance.
[in between space]
Impulse is presented as part of [in between space], an afternoon of participatory workshops and discussions in the DiverseWorks gallery that each explore how the creative process can be a form of personal expression and healing. The artist collectives leading these sessions were invited because of their emphasis on supporting and nurturing one another through their processes of creative growth. Workshop participants will be provided with the tools and space to tell their own stories through artistic expression.
All ages and levels of artistic experience (or non-experience!) are welcome. [in between space] is free of charge, and participants may choose to select individual sessions or attend the entire afternoon.
