Artsadmin Weekenders

Chris Goode

As theatre and performance makers we can find ourselves talking a lot about space – empty space, found space, safe space… But this may tend to obscure a vital truth: people don’t live in spaces, they live in places. How, then, might we create theatrical places within and beyond the performance space? How do we make theatre that’s fit to live in? Taking our cue from ideas around liminality and cultural dissidence, this workshop will explore the meaning and significance of place and the possibility of truly inhabiting one’s work. The weekend is suitable for makers from all disciplines and backgrounds, though the core proposition relates particularly to experimental theatre. We’ll work together, talk together, and hopefully, ultimately, live together (just for a bit)
