What’s Front Got to Do With It?
Workshop for AKT-members and international guests with Chrysa Parkinson
Wednesday, 28.2 and Thursday, 1.3. I 10h15 – 11h45 I Uferstudios, Studio 14
During this meeting I will propose movement and language-based scores. The workshop will be structured around the question of experiential authorship. Rather than considering the author as an owner (or controller) of actions, roles and materials, what can support miscomprehension and disorientation as artistic materials? How does the performing artist activate, engage with, form, reform and play with how they are constituted?
And with front?
Where is it? How did it get there? What is it up to?
