As part of our work developing targeted programming partnerships with arts organisations to advance collaborative practice across specific artforms and contexts and piloting collaborative learning platforms with a focus on the digital, we are pleased to announce:
Space, Place and Multiple Selves: Performing the relational field in socially engaged theatre by Outlandish Theatre Platform
Considering notions of the body in space, this interactive online workshop series will engage artists and diverse community professionals and participants in an exploration of the relational quality of multiple performances of selves as a representation of (now digital) place. In their collaborative work with participants, Outlandish Theatre creates poly-vocal performances, creating uncanny choreographies and reveal glimpses of the places we inhabit. This professional development workshop series will illuminate the hidden and embodied nature of the kind of intersubjective exchange, which is central to collaborative practice, through three sessions.
Applications to participate (max 8 participants) are due by the 21st April 2020 – email info[at]create-ireland.ie with “Outlandish Theatre workshop” in the subject line with your CV and a brief description of why you are interested (in 100 words). Participants will require access to internet and availability on the below dates. Individual work to be completed between the 30th April and 5th May is the creation of a short performance/ written response, to be shared with Outlandish Theatre prior to group feedback.
