Dante or Die: Creating Site-Specific Performance and Devised Theatre

HKAF@Cattle Depot Creative Hub

Event Details

Two Workshops (20 participants)

  1.     18Mar 1400-1800 (for professional theatre artists)
  2.     19Mar 1400-1800 (any background)

Dante or Die Theatre is inviting HK artists to join an intensive site-specific devising workshop. It will be led by the company’s Co-Artistic Directors Terry O’Donovan and Daphna Attias. During the workshop artists will explore methods of creating new work based on the company’s experience on devising and writing original performances in a variety of site-specific contexts such as hotel rooms, leisure centres and self-storage buildings.

The workshops will offer participants the chance to explore and create new performances in interesting and unconventional spaces. We will spend two days moving, writing, improvising and designing audience journeys around buildings, culminating in opening their idea and concept to new ways of engaging with audiences in space.

Key areas that the workshop will explore are:

- Placing site at the heart of the work

- The role of your audience in site-specific performance

- Physical storytelling moving through spaces

- Creating robust narrative in site-based theatre
