Belltable: Connect invites applications for Translating Live to Online Workshops this Autumn.
Belltable: Connect is inviting applications for three week-long sessions for emerging/ midcareer/ established theatre/ performance artists living and working locally.
The workshop is designed to develop audience engagement and shared experience. Not solely in the live context, the workshop explores how “live” translates to “online”. Can the lived and shared experiences of an actor and audience exist when presented through online platforms? How can theatre artists become effective storytellers while not becoming filmmakers? Many artists are moving activities online, hoping to find an audience for a new, ‘not-quite-live/ not-quite-video-or-film’ artform. Practitioners must therefore examine what this new discipline might be and how it connects with audiences as active participants in the performance, as opposed to casual observers.
Simon Thompson facilitates three independent week-long sessions for five emerging/ midcareer/ established Artists, in Belltable Hub. Artists will explore Complicité and Kinetic Empathy through play and failure, improvisations and physical interventions. Particular focus will be on the corporeal architecture of the body. Through embodiment of sensation and emotion, the Artists learn about their own body, become aware of how it moves through space and how much non-verbal information it imparts to the observer.
Who is Translating Live to Online for? Professional theatre/ performance artists/makers at different stages of their careers: actors, dancers, playwrights, performance devisers, designers, etc
Applicants must have theatre/ performance as their main career and have professional experience, or studied theatre/ performance at third level. These workshops are for practitioners living, working and substantially operating in Limerick city and county.
Application deadline is Friday, 11th September at 12 noon.
