How can we facilitate new dialogue, inspire social and
political transformations and reimagine our relationship to
nature in response to climate breakdown?
A 3-week immersive storytelling residency set in the Kankon jungle of South Goa to explore the question of climate resilience through art. Led by Lonan Jenkins of The Embers Collective, a travelling storytelling collaboration celebrated around the globe for their bold re-imagining of ancient folklore and mythology.
The residency explores storytelling mediums from around the world and introduces the tools for crafting captivating performances around contemporary global issues drawing inspiration from the tales of old.
Residents learn the secrets of effective storytelling including body language, vocal techniques, public speaking skills, as well as techniques to help engage your audience, structure stories and create narratives that build emotion and effect.
Residents are welcome to work on individual pieces and encouraged to collaborate with peers on the residency program. Khaama Kethna cultivates spaces that encourage personal and professional growth through free learning, creative experimentation and inspiration drawn from direct contact with the wild. The Project's intention is to rewild and explore ways to resolve the enduring conflict between (wo)men and nature.
The residency culminates in an interdisciplinary eco-arts festival celebrating all pieces created by residents in response to the climate crisis. Residents are asked to create at least one piece of work for Khaama Kethna collection that will be included in the festival at the end of the program.
