This workshop will explore the intoxication that comes from drinking the wine of a different tavern. Fall under the spell of Sufi poetry, create spontaneous work and perform in the moment. Moving through the senses to the sixth sense, this workshop will also include an introduction to Sema, the 'dance' of the Mevlevi Whirling Dervishes, whose inspiration comes from Persian mystic philosopher and poet Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi. Requirements: Passion, Patience, Paper, Pencil, relaxed clothing and good socks.
