The cup– an object of bodily characteristics and anatomy including foot, belly, lip, hand(le), gesture, balance, and weight- has been a participant in over 2,500 years of human culture. Holding a cup in our hands, putting it to our lips, passing it to others, is one of many exchanges between body and object.

On November 18, Project: Cup collaborates with movement embodiment doula, Óscar Trujillo for a fun-filled afternoon of performance, discussion, and playful activities to engage the body and mind. 

Using the body as an expressive medium, Óscar will invite participants to observe, play, collaborate, brainstorm, act, and interact. Participants will explore everyday embodied experiences in space and with the cup. Bring your silly self or bring your serious self. This event is free and open to all ages and abilities. No experience necessary.
