Experimenting with Performance, 2-4pm
Rhythms is a participatory workshop led by artist Luca Bosani focusing on performance making and rhythm. Through the introduction to three primary elements – repetition, stillness and inconsistency – the participants are invited to experiment with different performance rhythms, in collaboration and individually.
Peer Support Workshop, 4-6pm
Exhibition curator Séamus McCormack will lead an artist-led peer support workshop on ways of discussing and supporting practice. This participatory session consists of various exercises and will look at self-positioning, reflection and feedback on direction.
Aimed at emerging artists and students, it is advised toattend both sessions, but you can also only attend one.
Programmed in conjunction with Rain Wetting Thirst, at Lewisham Arthouse
