Cartographies of Movement / Workshop and performance lecture

Luisa Barreto / Miro Wallner /

Language: English

The workshop, from 28 November to 1 December, conceived by cultural scientist and dramaturge Luisa Barreto together with performer Miro Wallner, is aimed at performance artists who are interested in the relationship between artistic expression and writing. Using different mind maps and diagrams as tools for artistic writing, the goal is to strengthen self-confidence by opening up the map of questions and demands that inspire the participants' creative and writing processes.

Moving through the different types of text (project, research, portfolio), as well as expanding or unfolding new projects, together we will delve into the translation zone between movement and speech. On 2.12 a performance lecture will be given by Luisa and Miro to open up the methods and elements used for artistic exchange to a wider audience.
