Throughout the workshop, we engage in different exercises, in order to establish a shared vocabulary for discussing physical improvisations and performance compositions. Furthermore, through movement, participants can discover new possibilities of creation within their own bodies, and can better understand the world of performance.
By embracing a method that blends theory and practice, we aim to destabilize the traditional academic method that prioritizes the archive (the written word) over the repertoire (embodied practice). We propose a method in which the two stand on equal ground, coexisting in a symbiotic relationship. Research on performance is fundamentally linked to the creative practice of performance making.
