H Ouramo (they/them): how to do things with support
Every single act or action requires structures of support. We will explore this through doing some things with objects, materials and meanings. We will use discussion, writing and our bodies in relation to the space and objects in order to create trails/images/situations. We will use soft witnessing and sharing and all exercises can be carried out in your own way. We might assemble families of things, avatars, cyborg or stunt bodies out of chains of thoughts and trash and talk about the relationships between visible and invisible presences. Please bring a pen and paper to take notes and draw with.
Sara Melleri: How to do things with acting in a scene
Pick a song. In the morning we warm up by making improvised show number to the songs that you’ve picked. Wear clothes that are good for moving in. I use the word “show” loosely because I believe that a show can be anything. No previous experience of acting or theatre is needed. The second part of the day is for scenes with text from the film Whatever happened to Baby Jane? (1962).
Come to the workshop with an open mind and ready to experiment with expression. There is no right or wrong way of acting here.
