Weekender Labs

 

Artsadmin's Weekender Labs are workshops led by international artists and are open to all practitioners.

The idea running through the programme is to facilitate access to artists working across a wide spectrum of approaches to performance and to bring practitioners together who may not otherwise meet. The workshops are curated and run in a spirit of play and collective experiment – more of a lab than a masterclass -  with the content of each reflecting the lead artist's own practice while responding  to the interests of the people in the room. As such they are fluid and unpredictable in form, sparking new work and collaborations.

Curated by Nikki Tomlinson, the Weekender Lab programme has so far included over 30 labs, led by the following artists : Gob Squad, Lone Twin, Graeme Miller, Stacy Makishi, Oreet Ashery, Julia Bardsley, Richard DeDomenici, You Me Bum Bum Train, Marcia Farquhar, Joe Moran & Christopher House, Kira O'Reilly, Simon Vincenzi, Anne Bean, Station House Opera, João Fiadeiro, Peggy Shaw, Karen Christopher, Peter Liversidge, Chris Goode, Blast Theory, Ivana Müller, Franko B, Lois Weaver, Marcus Coates, Florence Peake, Dickie Beau, The Freedom Theatre Palestine, Harold Offeh, Andrea Luka Zimmerman, Joshua Sofaer, Vlatka Horvat, Lucy Cash and La Ribot with Juan Loriente and Thami Manekehla. 

In Spring 2018, we are running a Weekender Lab led by the Artsadmin artist Tim Spooner

"BEST WORKSHOP, EVER!"
– Vera Chok on Peter Liversidge's Weekender

"A unique, honest, inspiring, challenging, unusual event. I left feeling it had given me license to make my own work, stand up for and by my reasons for doing it."
– You Me Bum Bum Train Weekender

"Funny, challenging & bonding. I loved that she went from one medium to another so fluently."
– Stacy Makishi’s Weekender

"Unexpected, challenging and thought -provoking. A weekend full of generous offerings from all those involved."
– Anne Bean’s Weekender

"I feel that for networking, experimentation and learning – this was a wonderful opportunity."
– Harold Offeh's Weekender
