m e t o n y m i [ m i - t o n - u h - m e e ]
is a collaborative workshop involving 4 American artists, and 8 people between the ages of 16 and 25 with special needs in Reykjavik, Iceland.
The workshop will result in a short dance film as well as a documentary about the process. The goal of each session is to see one another, and through such sight, we can make sense of the space we are creating. This project is a construction of new understandings and paths, and the way this will be found is through the freedom of imagination and self.
