Sharing Our Collective Story: Video for Performance & Digital Storytelling
Saturday, Feb. 4 11 AM-1 PM ET
virtual event; open to mentees, mentors, program alum,and woman-identifying, trans*, and gender-expansive members of the public.
Want to learn how video can be used for storytelling and self-expression?
Join us for this cutting-edge workshop in which multimedia artist Lani Asunción will share aspects of their interdisciplinary public performative practice, weaving together a visual language guided by historical research, community engagement, and experimental performance connected to their identity as a queer multiracial Filipinx-American. In their practice, Lani integrates new media technologies and transmedia storytelling through ritualized performance to encourage conversations that facilitate awareness and healing.
In this workshop, Lani will teach fundamental elements of video production and editing on a non-linear timeline using the video editing app VITA. Participants will explore performance for video by capturing movement, sound, and artistic rituals, then create their own videos and share their narratives as performative storytelling.
Lani Asunción is an awardee of the Live Arts Boston Grant (2020) from the Boston Foundation, City of Boston’s Transformative Public Art Grant (2020), Dame Joan Sutherland Fund (2017), and the Kala Fellowship from the Kala Art Institute (2023). Their project Revolutionary AYAT was awarded the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) – Public Art for Spatial Justice Grant (2022).
