Cross Media Theatre Workshop Opportunities
From the Capital of Culture Visual Arts Team...
The Liverpool European Capital of Culture 2008 presents as a part of City in Transition Programme:
A CROSS MEDIA THEATRE WORKSHOP WITH THE BUILDERS ASSOCIATION & dbox
Celebrating its 11th anniversary, THE BUILDERS ASSOCIATION is a leading New York-based performance and media company that exploits the richness of contemporary technologies to extend the boundaries of theatre. Based on unusual collaborations and extensive periods of development, The Builders Association’s productions feature a seamless blend of text, sound, architecture, video, and stage performances that explore the impact of technology on human presence.
The workshop will alternate Builders “discussion sessions” with “work time” for the participants. Discussion sessions will revolve around the increasing incorporation of media in performance, its effect on contemporary theatre, and the political and social implications of the ‘mediatization’ of culture. We will also spend time on some practical matters: sustainability/connections/networking/touring, here and abroad and strategies for developing work. The workshop will require participants to actively engage in the contribution to each other’s projects. This engagement will be facilitated by the workshop leaders in consultation with each participant on the development of their project. Workshops participants will present documentation of their own work and discuss their practices within the context of cross Media Theatre.
Weds 26th April - Sat 29th April 2006 from 9am - 5pm
(Friday 28th April 9am - 1pm only)
The workshop will be held at FACT (The Box)
