Our company is driven by the idea of mythologizing the experience of our senses; creating performances and visual art that challenge the viewer's perception of time and perspective as well as allowing our work's intention to be spacious enough for empathetic experiences to emerge. Our work realizes and exists in the state of liminality- the sense of being 'in-between'. By working across different disciplines, we filter our sensual experiences into the mediums that best embodies a facet of the myth our overall concept is based on.

FORM/S

FORM/S is a bi-annual creative workshop in Seattle, WA produced by zoe | juniper that brings together Pacific Northwest, national, and international artists to teach working professionals and pre-professionals in the visual and performing arts. FORM/S aims to expand an artists' capabilities by both deepening an understanding of their primary form and exploring mediums outside of their fields of work through an emergent curriculum. Serving as a forum for artists to share resources as they examine their own processes, FORM/S stimulates the mind, broadens perspectives, and creates connections.


FORM/S: DECOLONIZING THE BODY THROUGH movement

January workshop at base

In January 2019, FORM/S is bringing together choreographers, dancers, artists, and educators Dani Tirrell and Zoe Scofield to engage with the daunting task of analyzing colonized and decolonized choice making. Dani and Zoe are asking the following questions: What is the function of our training? How can movement lead to self betterment? What is the history behind what we are doing? Are our choices of free will, or are we standing on the shoulders of our past? Rather than learn “right and wrong” opinions regarding dance and decolonization, artists are invited to participate in verbal and physical conversation with Dani and Zoe in order to reveal an individual perspective within themselves. This workshop explores questions regarding decolonization, and it is understood that we will not and cannot resolve the topic in four days. However, we hope that the discourses initiated with this workshop can continue into other FORM/S workshops, as well as into the broader communities of dance and visual arts. Catalyze the conversation.

CHOREOGRAPHIC SESSION

Application due December 23rd at 11:59pm

This new program takes four full FORM/S participants and provides them with the opportunity to show and be in dialogue with Dani Tirrell and Zoe Scofield about their work. Choreographer Session is a conversation about creative process. It is an opportunity for artists to share their current creative thinking and to bring their unique lenses to experiencing and talking about each other's’ work. Inspired by the recognition that artists rarely receive feedback for their work while in process, this session invites participants to analyze the project throughout its process rather than only as a final output. The format of ‘sharing’ is left open to the artist and may be performance, visual, spoken, a film, a recording, or any combination of approaches.
