How do we listen to each other? How do we interact? How do we respond to the landscape around us? How do we engage with time and space? Cultivating attentive awareness, empathetic presence and peripheral vision, through exercises and constructed situations / performance presentations, this performance art workshop will explore the multiple and very personalized ways in which we experience and foster intimacy and connection – in ourselves, towards others, and in relation to place. We will explore the ways in which a “non-productive” use of time, as carried out in public (place) activates a space as well as looking at how notions of “in-between,” (the spaces between thought and action, between actions, between each other, between ourselves and the spaces around us) can become material that feeds performative action/presence.

Since 2001 Victoria Stanton has been developing an expanded performance art practice combining public intervention and transactional/relational processes within a variety of communities and contexts across Canada and internationally. She has facilitated several workshops with TouVA (a collective comprised of Stanton, Sylvie Tourangeau and Anne Bérubé) and been developing a pedagogy via the exploration of human geography, architecture and the body as well as the micro-event – elements that have become fundamental to her workshops. She has previously given classes in Montreal (RAIQ, SKOL, Studio 303, Concordia University) Durham (Words Aloud Festival), Toronto (Hub 14, Artscape Gibraltar Point, Artscape Youngplace), Sudbury (Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario), Mexico (Centre FRONDA), and Melbourne (Overload Festival).

Comment intéragissons-nous? Comment réagissons-nous aux environnements intérieurs et extérieurs? Comment percevons-nous le temps et l’espace? Cultivant la conscience attentive, la présence empathique et la vision périphérique, cet atelier explore les multiples voies à travers lesquelles nous expérimentons l’intimité et les connexions entre soi et l’autre, entre soi et l’espace, entre soi et les éléments qui nous entourent. Les entre-espaces font également partie des expérimentations…

Depuis 2001, Victoria Stanton développe une large pratique en performance, combinant intervention publique. pratiques et processus transactionnels et relationnels auprès de diverses communautés et dans de multiples contextes au Canada et à l’international. Elle a animé plusieurs ateliers avec TouVA (un collectif composé d’elle-même, Sylvie Tourangeau et Anne Bérubé), et dévelloppe une pédagogie via l’exploration de la géographie, de l’architecture et du corps, ainsi que le microévénement. Ces éléments sont devenus fondamentaux pour ses ateliers. Elle a enseigné à Montréal (RAIQ, SKOL, Studio 303, Université de Concordia), à Durham (Words Aloud Festival), à Toronto (Hub 14, Artscape Gibraltar Point, Artscape Youngplace), à Sudbury (Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario), à Mexico (Centre FRONDA) et à Melbourne (Overload Festival).
