Front, Facing and Dis/orientation*
I will propose movement and language-based scores. The workshop will be structured around the question of experiential authorship. Rather than considering the author as an owner (or controller) of actions, roles and materials, how can miscomprehension and disorientation be invited to support the performers authorship? How does the performing artist activate, engage with, form, reform and play with how they are constituted?
How they are comprehended?
And with front?
Where is it. How did it get there. What is it up to.
To complete the program, Chrysa Parkinson will present her performing work Disorienting Front, saturday 9th of march, at 8.30pm
