Exploring lipsync as an art form and expression!

About this event

Performance powerhouse and micro theatre innovator, Rubyyy Jones, returns to Warehouse9 online, with a digital deep dive into lipsync and giving lip service! This will be a fun and fresh experience which requires no previous performance experience, but does require the willingness to learn, try and push! Assisted by queer artist and theatre maker, Prinx Lydia, Rubyyy will be leading this small group through various exercises and exertions in the art of lipsync and digital performance creativity. Through skill building workshops, research activities, 1:1 sessions and group exercises, we will developing mini solo lipsync acts on the theme "YOU VS YOUR CITYYY", culminating in a bold and brilliant sharing showcase. As well as exploring the art of lipsync and creating acts, we will engage with textiles and mixed media to create sets for our showcase, and also to play with costume, styling and makeup. Participants in the course can expect a playful, challenging and intense experience, and to have the opportunity to explore deeper the possibilities of lipsync as a medium but also as a tool for political and personal expression.

ABOUT WAREHOUSE9

Warehouse9 (est. 2007) is an artist-led queer performance venue in Copenhagen. We are a venue for radical and innovative arts practices and ideas by artists, art workers and activists with a passion for matters relating to identity politics, sexual expression and body representations.

Warehouse9 believes in performance as a means to challenge mainstream conventions and initiate social change. We champion unclassifiable artforms and underrepresented artists and art workers. Warehouse9 facilitates spaces where artists, audiences and activists can meet to reflect on, question, and re-imagine structural norms, and celebrate being together as a queer community.

We are a venue committed to performance and art workers of the future. We work collaboratively and cross-disciplinary to challenge the status quo, to instigate dialogue, to advocate for the independent arts sector and to write queer art into a broader art historical context.
