Inanimate Collaborations: A Workshop with Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau
Thursday, February 14, 7:00–9:00pm
What does it look like to have empathy for a thing? Imagining objects—both found and created in the studio—as sentient beings produces a speculative position laden with possibilities. In this workshop, we invite artists and others with an interest in movement and performance to work through a series of instructions with Lum and Desranleau; producing a series of short improvisations with an object of your choice. By positioning the object as a collaborator with its own will and way of being, this workshop will explore movement/performance strategies from the relationships between human beings and inanimate objects—both pragmatic and fantastical.
Participants are required to bring an object to work with; any object will do.
This workshop is open to all, but space is limited. Please RSVP (one RSVP per person) by emailing Daniella Sanader at firstname.lastname@example.org.
