Proxemic Space and Performance: ALONE or TOGETHER

This workshop will explore disrupting the space that defines the audience-performer relationship. Specifically, we will look at the distances between audience and performer; what can we do or say, depending on where we stand? Through a guided process, we will build a short performance that physically and psychologically puts the performer and the spectator alternatively in the position of being ALONE or TOGETHER.

Workshop Leader Biography:
Graduate in scenography/stage design from the ENSAD

and works in Paris. Since 1995 she has been collaborating
as stage designer in theatre and dance shows with directors such as Jean Boillot, Romain Bonnin, Patricia Allio & Éléonore Weber, Gilbert Désveaux, Marie Piemontese
and with choreographers such as Julika Mayer, Benoît
Lachambre and Su-feh Lee. In 2000, whilst a resident at
the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, she develops an
artistic practice using video, which brings speech and space
into play. Through visual, luminous or sonorous devices, her work questions the conditions of perception and the variants between seeing and perceiving. Her personal projects have been presented at the Palais de Tokyo (Paris), the IFA (Hall of Architecture and Heritage in Paris), the Lieu Unique (Nantes Scène Nationale), the FRAC – Île de France / Le Plateau (Contemporary Art Regional Fund), the Théâtre de la Cité Internationale (Paris), and the Zadkine Museum in Paris.
