scoring performance: between memory and imagination
Oct 8, 2020 at 18:00 — 20:00 (BST)
Please note there are TWO sessions one on 8 October 2020, 6.00pm-8.00pm and one on 10 October 2020, 10am-12noon. The sessions are linked and you need to attend both sessions (the booking system only lets us put one date).
Since March, performances and art projects have been cancelled and preparations abruptly cut before completion. More broadly and for other reasons performances sometimes never happen, exist only in the mind’s eye, remain as unrealised desires or as things not yet formed. This workshop engages in writing as a part of an arts/performance practice and explores the potential for writing to conjure up and evoke performance: writing that draws on and operates between embodied experience and imagination.
We will work solo, in small groups and collectively. In the first session we’ll work with simple score-based tasks in your own home/studio to generate sensory information in relation to body, object, space, time – and language. In the second session we’ll work with the traces and images of memory to create written ‘pieces’ which we will perform to each other: read, speak, view, listen to. Between sessions you will be given a task-invitation to drift, leap, skip, invent, note.
This event will be using Zoom (break out rooms, chat and other features), and aims to play with the physical real-time of doing and the remote sharing and translation of experience.
This Workshop is part of PITCH - a series of creative, practical and developmental sessions run by CAMP members for CAMP members, made possible by Arts Council England Emergency Fund. This workshop would normally cost £13 for CAMP members but is being offered for FREE!

About Katrina Brown
Katrina is a choreographer and artist with a hybrid practice of movement, drawing, writing, installation and still-and-moving image. Her work brings attention to the forces that circulate in organisations of and between bodies (performing, spectating), surfaces (skin, screen, wall) and materials. She is interested in notions of orientation, horizontality, non-human agency and has more recently instigated a series of studio conversations as a way of exchanging practical-conceptual ideas and experimenting with publication formats.
