Please join us for an afternoon of discussions and ideas to celebrate the launch of a special issue of Theatre, Dance and Performance Training ‘On Showing and Writing Training’.
- What is the difference between what you do and how you talk about what you do?
- What remains unsaid? What remains undone? What gets undone?
- What is impossible to explain?
- Who do you think you’re talking to?
The issue brings together writing, improvisation, experimentation and images to explore how performance is made, represented and reproduced through training. In doing so, it addresses wider questions about pedagogy, the live and the remembered in relation to the practices of art.
This symposium will feature an artist’s response from the performer Karen Christopher, as well as talks and provocations from contributors Katrina Brown, Paola Crespi, Franc Chamberlain, Emma Cocker, Ysabel Clare, Joa Hug, Ben Spatz and John Hall.
‘On Showing and Writing Training’ was edited by Dick McCaw and guest-editor Mary Paterson.
Wednesday 30th November, 2 to 5 pm
University of London, Senate House, Malet Street , London, WC1E 7HU
Tickets are free. Reserve them via ShowingWritingTraining.eventbrite.co.uk
