Eventbrite - IMMERSION SEMINAR: performing bodies in space

the IMMERSION SEMINAR performing bodies in space
A week of practical performance workshops, pseudo-academic lecture-panel discussions, and a class mixer slow dance around the theme of SPACE.

Performance necessarily takes place within space, but space itself is also performative. This seminar addresses concepts and techniques for performing in space and utilizing its performative capabilities. Over the course of 5 days the imnotlost studiolab will host 4 workshops that seek to develop the human performers' skills, capabilities, and vision. Acting, Puppetry, Movement, and Clown explore shaping and dissecting space with one's body, scenery, and objects, responding to space emotionally, connecting with audience and fellow performers over distances and spatial confines, and telling stories through spatial patterns. A series of 3 lectures/ panel discussions delve into topics of performing in public space, interactive and participatory art, and sensory and immersive installation performance. And finally, a seminar mixer spice things up: The Dance Hall of Radiant Space, a sensual evening of slow dancing to vinyl with your peers.

Imnotlost Studiolab is a studio devoted to the research and exploration of performing design: art and theater that harness the performative and storytelling power of abstract design elements like objects, scenery, lighting, and noise. Inspired by the theoretical discourse of early film theory, imnotlost Studiolab seeks to open up and continue conversations among and between artists and theorists, while supporting practical performance research.

STUDIOLAB is located at 130 Palmetto st studio 204 in Bushwick Brooklyn.
