Exploring the Architecture of Listening

Ernesto Pujol (The Listening School/The Listeners)

As a social choreographer, Ernesto Pujol speaks of his cultural field practice as based on a methodology of vulnerability that triggers trust as the foundation for decolonizing and grounding public art. This three-hour immersive workshop is based on the basic training that Pujol provides his listener performers. It commences with a personal presentation on what the artist calls the intimate architecture of listening, followed by a group exercise that elicits individual listening memories, inviting sensitive participant interaction and culminating in a final moment of shared experiences.

Open to Penn faculty, students and staff. Green Penn Open Pass and face mask required. Space is limited and we ask registered participants to let us know 48 hours in advance if they are no longer able to attend.

This experiential workshop will be preceded by the talk “Learning to Listen in Troubled Times: Ernesto Pujol and Aaron Levy” hosted both online and in person for Penn faculty, students, and staff.
