Playing with the Wrong Toys (Workshop)
Led by Hester Chillingworth
27 October 2016
Performance Studio, Chisenhale Dance Space
£20 / £10 CDS Members
Includes admission to the performance and discussion events
This workshop will explore how childishness, mischief and confusion can be put to use in performance making.
Hester will draw on work with GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN and the recent process of making Shorty to explore with the group some practical ways in which we can harness failure, being inappropriate and struggling to articulate things as key points of access and material generation when creating performance work.
The workshop will also look at how expectations and readings of gender can be engaged with to inform, frame and find useful subversion in performance.
Workshop participants are able to join the performances (additional booking information required) and attend the discussion evening. More info here.
