August 7, 2021 | Part of Some Time Away, Some Time Away
What happens when you float in the dark on your own?
Starts 12:00 PM
Ends 2:00 PM
Venue Warehouse 50
Does solitude foster creativity? What do you discover when spending time in isolation? What self-understanding emerges, and what can you harness through this?
Creative Isolation invites you to spend 60 minutes alone in a floatation pod (or cabin) in DIFC prior to reuniting in a post-isolation workshop. Here, three artists and one writer guide the group in discussion and individually work with you to write or create around the solitary experience. You will leave with a draft—key words, a title, or an expression—of a creative project. Or not… Perhaps solitude is not creatively generative. This may be part of your discovery.
6 August: Floatation cabins/pods (further information provided on selection)
7 August: Workshop | 12-2PM | Warehouse 50, Alserkal Avenue
Participation is limited to 7 people. Kindly email us at email@example.com stating your interest in the workshop. Participants will be randomly selected and notified by email with floatation tank appointment options and a Workshop Engagement Form to confirm their participation.
Creative Isolation is part of Some Time Away, Alserkal’s summer programme in three acts.
Mona Ayyash is a Dubai-raised artist. She likes to focus on repetition, memorisation, slowness, and boredom.
Kevin Jones is a writer in denial.
M. Khalid is an artist walking, running, cycling and driving. He examines the materiality of everyday objects and coaxes out their metaphoric potential.
Moylin Yuan is a poet on public transport in Dubai, and a designer who goes to Abu Dhabi sometimes. She thinks about astrology and human movement a lot.
