About this Event

The Sensorium as Smörgåsbord is a material feast, incorporating a wide variety of tools and objects, presenting as a visual lexicon for embodied learning. Each Sensorium carries a different tone and heft: on this occasion, we will work under the umbrella of jubilee and explore this as a “season of sensation” by sampling varying textures and temperatures and testing the qualities of a wide range of implements. We will set the intention of working with joy, to make space in the body for a greater feeling of aliveness, electricity, and movement.

The Sensorium utilizes everyday objects to discover elaborate fields of play and congress. Introductory levels of this work explores the non-erogenous nature of interpersonal contact, collective creativity, and relaxing in the company of others. The fundament is the giving and receiving of positive attention, communicating our wishes and boundaries, and having those requests enacted.

Sessions are aimed at broadening creativity and sensual contact to the material world. Each session is built around the wishes and needs of the group. A central aspect of this practice is touch, but, the work may also be grounded in elements like a change in temperature, aroma, aural sensation, and speech.

Common objects included in a Sensorium are: food (fresh fruits and vegetables, dry legumes, chocolate, salt, and other spices), the human voice (live singing and musical instruments), textiles of all kinds, cooking utensils, jewelry, clothespins, feathered objects, books, all kinds of (clean) sports equipment, wood, flowers, metallic and mechanical devices, (new) paintbrushes, etc. Please bring a hidden selection of items for possible use throughout the evening.
