A series of pop-up fundraising workshops in collaboration with Gibney.


Creative Workshop with Lea Ved

Here is an invitation to open a world with me, to awaken states of mind to channel something of your own physical language as I share mine with you. We will bathe in subtlety and allow it to grow in the landscape of your intimate space, the floor, in refinement, and an exchange of choreography through visual art, writing, and sound.
