2021 | PERFORMANCE LABORATORY
THE MA/MFA Advanced Theatre Practice students take part in a term long performance experiment, focused on generating new work from a simple stimulus. Curated in companies by the course team, students create a process through exploring new ways of collaborating and performing, abandoning normative modes of theatre-making and engaging in the creative risks offered by new ideas. This year’s laboratory began virtually, and processes took advantage of what the digital can offer as well as made material between and through the distances they found themselves in. Now they return to the site – some students meeting in person for the first time – to see what happens to performance when we begin with absence and move into presence.
