Post Pride Walk in Pride Park — Tai-Chi & Community Picnic

Saturday 30 July 15:00 @ Vondelpark

Come chill at Pride Park after Pride Walk with CinemAsia and share drinks (BYOD), Asian food from our friends at Jen’s Bing and friendly conversations. At 15:00 we start the Tai Chi workshop with Jessie Yingying Gong.

Away with the Flow: Tai-Chi with Jessie Yingying Gong
The Tai-Chi workshop, Away with the Flow with Jessie Yingying Gong aims to bring body awareness and collectivity through movement and flow of energy. How do we connect with each other’s physical space again? How does one’s imagination materialise through the body? How are spaces activated and appropriated by public activities? Together, we’ll perform our bodies and form our thoughts.

About Jessie Yingying Gong
Having been born and raised in China before setting out to study and live in Europe, prompted Jessie a lasting fascination with the topics of memory, identity, symbols and language. She is currently developing a series of works regarding the form, materialisation and development of language. The research into these aspects of language, with a focus on the written forms, leads her to a kind of archaeology of symbolism that serves to chronicle our history on a multitude of levels.
