How to express ourselves about biases born from the power structures and systems of oppression?
In the spirit of her new piece Killjoy Quiz, writer, storyteller and performer Luanda Casella will be hosting a writing workshop that aims to share and develop common practices on how to express ourselves, as an individual and as a member of communities, about topics such as those which run through Killjoy Quiz.
In English, but writing can be done in any language
Luanda Casella is a writer and performer trying to rescue the art of storytelling from its mediatised doomed destiny. Blending rhetoric with irony, her work exposes language constructions, exploring unreliable narration in fiction and in everyday communication processes. Her research focuses broadly on the role of literature in the development of critical thinking—the ways individuals relate to narratives in order to create a sense of identity, to form their opinion of the world and ultimately protect themselves. During the last few years, she has been studying 'the rhetoric of deception', investigating the use of storytelling in communication media.
