Now Eat Your Words - Performance Writing Workshop by Sebastian H-W - Iberia...
Thu 3 November 2016, 10:00 – 18:00 GMT
Join Sebastian H-W, live artist and experimental writer in residence as part of Iberian Week, as he invites you to bring their own research topics, interests and enquiries and spend the day being guided through a range of practical exercises and provocations prepared by Sebastian in regards to researching, writing, cooking and presenting/’performing’ the texts, notes and lectures cooked up during the course of the day.
This workshop will offer a broad insight into Sebastian's artistic methodologies in devising new work, which could help a range of academics, researchers, writers and creatives expand their practices, overcome blocks, and rethink their formats of (re)presenting their writing(s) through media, technology, utensils and equipment.
Sebastian is a graduate of Performance Writing founded at Dartington College of Arts and Falmouth University: “‘Performance Writing’ explores the rapid changes taking place within the technologies for producing, circulating and receiving text; a 'turn to writing' within other cultural practices, especially perhaps its integral presence within visual and sonic culture, philosophical preoccupations with the idea of performativity, the (theatrical) performance or visual space, and the changing status of the page” (J.Hall (2013) Essays on Performance Writing etc Vol 1 Shearsman: London)
This workshop will be developed out of Sebastian’s week-long residency exploring the colonial, religious and linguistic influence of chocolate-making in Iberian society and its wider impact in European culture, which will inform his writing and performing of new scripts towards his performance lecture Chokolatul performed as part of the Iberian Week.
