Does displacement produce a new perspective on my identity? 
How do I approach my culture from a distance? 
What do I let go and what do I preserve?

The workshop aims to provide attendees with tools for the creation of individual or collective performative work focused on their migratory experiences and the personal metamorphosis that is generated through these processes. Questions on personal experiences of migration will be addressed in the workshop that will be deeply focused on the particular cultural contexts of the attendees, to establish a multicultural learning platform for the group.

Together, we will be working on the presence, projection, delivery, and scenic truth in the creation of an individual or collective performance exercise framed in the migratory experiences of the participants.

The workshop will focus on migrant female narratives and self-narratives. Individual or group work based on textual fragments delivered by the workshop facilitators or texts proposed by the workshop attendees on the theme of forced or chosen migration. The texts proposed by the workshops will consider a gender perspective and privilege the stories of female migrant writers.
