How do we listen to each other? How do we interact? How do we respond to the landscape and environments (indoors and out) around us? How do we engage with time and space? Cultivating attentive awareness, empathetic presence and peripheral vision, this workshop will explore the multiple and personalized ways that we experience and foster intimacy and connection – in ourselves, towards others, and in relation to place. We will explore how a “non-productive” use of time, as carried out in public (place) activates a space, and attempt to create contexts to experience various kinds of “in-betweens,” (the spaces between thought and action, between actions, between each other, between ourselves and the spaces around us).
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR
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) Durham (Words Aloud Festival), Toronto (Hub 14, Artscape Gibraltar Point, Artscape Youngplace), Sudbury (Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario), Mexico (Centre FRONDA), and Melbourne (Overload Festival).
