How to Explain Belief: A Trans Boxing Workshop
Presented in partnership with Heavy Breathing
A 2-part event happening on Saturday, February 1, in the Diego Rivera Gallery:
2-3pm | Performance Lecture (open to all)
3-4pm | Boxing Workshop (exclusively for trans & gender variant people)
How to Explain Belief is led by artist and Trans Boxing founder, Nola Hanson. Through a performance-lecture and workshop, Nola will use boxing as a framework to explore ritual, community, performance, and embodiment. By activating the gallery space as the training location, Nola constructs a hybridized site that recontextualizes the physical activities that occur within it.
Workshop participants are encouraged to attend the performance-lecture. After the performance-lecture, people who are not participating in the workshop will be asked to leave the space. There will be no audience for the workshop: only primary participants and the facilitator (Nola Hanson) The boxing workshop is exclusively for trans and gender variant people. Participants are asked to wear comfortable clothing/footwear that is appropriate for exercise.
This event is free and wheelchair accessible (ramp located at Chestnut Street entrance). To register for the boxing workshop, please fill out the registration form: https://form.jotform.com/200096000057137
