Wed 12 Sept — Wed 14 Nov
Following the success of last year’s course, and as part of this year’s Experimentica 12: UNSEEN, we are offering a ten-week course — on Wednesday evenings plus two Saturday sessions (Saturday dates TBC) — which gives you the opportunity to study, gain practical experience and discuss the history and contemporary understanding of performance art.
‘Performance art’ as a term describes artworks that range from art actions, experimental performance, installation and live art, as well as dance and theatre. It continues to influence much of contemporary practice at venues like Chapter as well as galleries, museums, festivals and artist-run projects across the world.
This course gives a practical and accessible guide to understanding how performance art is made and considered as well as an opportunity to collaborate, whether as audience, artist, writer or organiser.
The course was created by Davida Hewlett, who will lead the sessions with invited guest artists - Aaron Williamson and Tom Marshman are confirmed.
Included in the course is a pass to Experimentica 12: UNSEEN which takes place from Wed 21 - Sun 25 November, and provides a valuable opportunity to see and discuss the work of many artists working in Wales, the UK and internationally.
Places on the course are limited and a commitment to attend the whole course is requested. To find out more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also inviting applications for two places subsidised by Experimentica. To apply for a subsidised place, email an application of no more than one side of A4 explaining your interest in and commitment to attending the course to email@example.com. The deadline for applications for subsidised places is Fri 20 July and the decision will be made by the end of July.
A second-level course will be held between January and March 2013.
Supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
