Performance Making Workshop Sing-up
Over the course of four days we will investigate how we tell stories-day to day, in our work, and more formal models of theater. Participants will be given the opportunity to create brief shareable performances pieces. These can be made of words, movement, music, silence, the possibilities are limited only by the imaginations of those in the group. What is your story? How did you end up doing the work that you do? Is there a journey that inspires you? We will investigate the role of performance and experience in the day to day and how we can build performances out of the work we do at the lab and the stories in our lives. Both individually and collectively. Performances are experiments and experiments are performances. Human beings have been telling stories for ages, what is it the story that you want to tell right now?
