For P.S. Performance Art Festival
The Hague, he will be in Holland for one weekend. You can learn more
about the festival at https;//performancesite.wordpress.com
or facebook: P.S.
The workshop on sunday will
be about performance art related to space.
Context: The space determines
a big part of the final performance. How to deal with it as a performance
artist? Where does the performer place his public in the room, opposite
his performance? What kind of significance has the space in the performance,
is it secondary or defining. How can space be used as an advantage in
the performance and can you make it into the topic of the performance?
Does the performer fit in with his environment or is he in advance looking
for spots that are interesting to use in the performance?
