Founded in New York in 1980, Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver of Split Britches, have been developing strategies for radical independent performance making for the past 40 years. This practical workshop is designed to give performers of all types – even non-performers – the tools to create their own solo performance from the ordinary details and extra-ordinary fantasies of our lives. In a relaxed yet structured environment, we will work with movement, impulse, autobiographical text, found text, song, dance, fantasy, popular culture and, most importantly, the desire to make the things we never thought we could make and to say the things we always wanted to say.

 

You might expect to…

  • (Ad)dress the fantasy
  • Visualise the exquisite
  • Use the mundane
  • Find gesture on impulse
  • Write words on your feet
  • Tell the creative truth
  • Silence your critic
  • Collaborate with the enemy
  • Appropriate everything
  • Deconstruct the canon
  • Make people laugh

This Performance Lab is suitable for students, emerging or mid-career artists, directors and theatre-makers, ages 18+. Lois and Peggy would like to encourage people to bring something small to offer at a shared lunch after the workshop where you can continue discussions and ask questions. Lunch will happen from 1.30 – 2.30pm.
