Five days, five public locations. Indoors and Out. Morning and Evening. North, South, East, West. Mountain, River, Downtown, Backyard.

Continuing from the same premise as the Between Intimacy and Architecture workshop series from the past three years, this five-day intensive will specifically locate our process (from warm-ups to presentations) in public settings, surrounded by elements of the “everyday.” An opportunity to deepen our explorations about how we consider, construct, and witness performance in public (non-art) contexts, participants will be invited to experiment with in-situ and in-socius performative practices as we move from one location to the next on a daily basis. How does place inform our behaviour? How do we move, walk, relate, receive – depending on where we are? How do weather, air, walls, others inform our performative choices? With an emphasis on post-studio methodologies, through embodied research we will also examine the im/practicalities (challenges, surprises, joys, unpredictability of dynamics) of making/showing work literally “outside the box.”

** In conjunction with Stanton’s year-long research residency “The Sanctimonious Sect of Nothing Is Sacred / L’Édifiante secte de rien (n’)est sacré” co-presented by DARE-DARE

(This workshop will be bilingual – English and French)
