2-Day Masterclass


The Art of Looping: Ephemeral and tangible experiences expressed through costume, performance, spoken word, sound, choreography and action!

The workshop seeks to create new understandings and opportunities to encounter and exchange using mobile phones as a tool to foster interaction between participants and collective works using audiovisual looping as an artistic method.

Organised in an experimental and engaging format (we decide together at the start of the workshop) the different student groups create a theatre of making; processes of learning and unlearning, performed, documented and edited on the spot with their mobile phones.

Our stages will be the neighborhoods surrounding the university and the final composition will be informed by chance encounters over the 2 day workshop. Please bring 3 diverse texts you find engaging for your current practice, a mobile phone with video editing capabilities if you have it, otherwise we share.
