FAILURE Lab is back!

Workshop information Spring 2018

FAILURE Lab is an exploratory, experimental workshop with a performance focus, open to curious people and practitioners from all backgrounds.

Especially for people interested in body-based performance, and multi-disciplinary improvisation. Mary integrates the visual, physical and vocal to collaboratively explore grey areas, unfamiliar territories and places we’re scared of.

FAILURE Lab includes elements of: contact improvisation, dance, clowning, play, comedy improvisation, devising and choreography, visual composition, costume, voice and text work, and continuous writing.

Mary draws from an eclectic mix of philosophical thought from cultural, queer and feminist theory, and influences from contemporary performance and dance makers.

more information:

3 workshop modules are organised by topic. Join the one that interests you most, or sign up for all 3. Encouraged to sign up for at least one module, so the group can go on a journey together. Drop-ins are also welcome, by arrangement.
