This is a creative workshop for early practitioners of performance art or students of fine art school who have some previous (even brief) experience with performance. The workshop series will be structured across different strands including crit labs that will provide the opportunity to discuss our existing work, short lectures on performance artists and 'food for thought' from current philosophical debates around performance art. We'll also explore physical training involving exercises that will enhance our presence and help us ground ourselves in the body. There will be time to reflect and develop an idea for our personal solo. There is no requisite to already have an idea to work with, but hopefully this will emerge during the workshop. There is also no requirement to present a final performance during the workshop itself, but we wish to create a nurturing environment that allows ideas to arise and be elaborated up to a point that is satisfying for each participant. The approach is highly personalised and all different forms of expression are welcome.
Gain greater insight upon your own practice, learn some basics about performance art history and develop a critical point of view upon the current performance art scene.
