Being Covert: Interiors
A site-specific exploration/workshop led by Melanie Kloetzel and Phil Smith (of Wrights & Sites) that explores publicly-accessible “hidden spaces” with an eye toward nurturing the self-world connection.
Through workshops in Liverpool, Teignmouth, Exeter, and Plymouth, UK to date, Kloetzel and Smith examines the connections between inner reflection, subtle physical play and public space. Through a series of movement meditations, the workshop aids participants in an examination of their interiorities through inherently active methodologies. Using as a premise the fact that our inner lives are under increasing scrutiny and surveillance, the collected meditations encourage particpants to put down their phones and tablets to reclaim a healthy and active lifestyle, one that is highly integrated with and inspired by local environs.
