Weekender with Marcus Coates: Thank-you For Not Thinking


This Weekender lab led by Marcus Coates will explore approaches to non-rational problem solving. Participants will develop forms of ritual to create insight into intractability. We will use narrative, movement and vocalisation as tools to create performance as ritual. The main focus will be the explicit use of imaginative experience and how this can be translated into rational understanding. The lab will employ the format of performance, using both the roles of witness (user) and performer (artist) as a starting point to create a functional and beneficial exchange.

Taking place in the art deco theatre space at Toynbee Studios, this is open to anyone over 18, no particular skills necessary but, as Marcus says, “imagination and a willingness to look stupid both help.”
