Victoria Stanton
Performance Art Workshop: Between Intimacy and Architecture, Subtle and Relational Performance in Public Place
July 10 – 12, 2015

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.

Elizabeth Underhill
The Mobile Art Party
Dates TBC

Open to children ages 7 to 12, this visual arts program will explore the ways we can take art out of the classroom and into the world in exciting ways using a range of fun and unusual materials.

Lo Bil
Performance Art Lab and Ensemble Improvisation
Dates TBC

Performance Art Lab is an 8-week workshop to consider concepts involved in making performance art by engaging participants in looking at and discussing the work of various artists, active participation in simple exercises, and refining the interests of participants leading to a workshop showing.  Ensemble Improvisation is an investigation into creating a physical performance piece together.  It offers participating artists an ongoing practice to work together to see what develops from weekly movement research and skill development in group awareness, making proposals, support of initiations, elements of composition, integrating voice, and observing each other.
