WinLab 2017: Chrysa Parkinson

Category: WinterLab (Winlab)
Description: Roles and Materials / Glitches and Ghosts  
Monday 4 – Friday 8 December 2017, 11am – 5pm

What are the roles and materials performers create when working between how they are seen and how they see? And between how they sense and how they make sense? Performers can be inscribed and informed by both context and content. They can be re-formedand de-formed by the roles they take and the materials they make. There’s a double pressure that forms a border realm between the inside-out and the outside-in. What qualities does that border realm need for the performer to scale, experiment, comprehend, constitute and author their own experience? What traces are left when the role is over and the materials no longer in use? Who do those traces belong to? How?

Physical performance practices and guided discussion will be used to consider the roles and materials of experiential authorship. Glitches, ghosts, empathy, abstraction, distraction and inscription are some of the many tools that will be welcome and in play during these five days.
This workshop is geared toward performers.

The workshop fee includes a free ticket to Chrysa’s Artist talk on Tuesday 5 December
Time: 11:00am-5:00pm
