PETER on “BOX TAPE”

Using a shit load of clear packing tape and through a shared sense of labor, hospitality, and dance, we invite the public to join as we build and dance a sculpture made of tape that binds together the social fabric of the performance environment. We will question the idea of ‘product’ by broadening the parameters and perception of what a performance event might look and how the interaction might unroll. A sticky situation…

A social investigation

Architecture as Performance

Getting Caught

Collaborative authorship …

box tape, a stigmergy – a mechanism of indirect coordination between agents or actions. The principle is that the trace left in the environment by an action stimulates the performance of a next action, by the same or a different agent. In that way, subsequent actions tend to reinforce and build on each other, leading to the spontaneous emergence of coherent, apparently systematic activity.

In this way we flow through the poses and begin to unify our breath in a way that is extraordinarily trance-like. You will feel rejuvenated and ready for the days and New Year ahead.

Community /// PERFORMANCE CLASSES: Ali Robson + Tom Stroud

COMPANY LINK: Alternative Classes

 

COMPANY LINK is an organization dedicated to the Experimental Theatre and Dance artist living and working in Winnipeg. Through training, presentation, and forums we support the development of work that is driven by artistic vision and resists definition within traditional categories.

 

COMPANY LINK will be offering two Alternative Classes every Sunday from March 1st – April 26th, 2015.

 

CLASS #1 – Contact Improvisation with Ali Robson

11:30am-1:30pm ($90 for 9 Weeks)

Contact Improvisation is a partner dance form based on the physical principles of touch, momentum, shared weight, and most quintessentially – following a shared point of contact.    Through an honoring of every moment one learns to recognize and differentiate subtle impulses in our movement choices and our partner’s choices. We begin to decipher the cues that we give and receive which tell us when to lead or follow, when to go up, when to go down, where to touch, how to lift, when to slow down, and when to be still. In this form one learns to stay in integrity with each choice, never forcing, never rushing. 

Who Should Take The Class? Actors, dancers, and/or anyone interested in expanding physical range and skill. All levels are welcome.

 

CLASS #2 – Crossing the Boundaries: Image Based Improvisation with Tom Stroud

2:00pm-4:00pm ($90 for 9 Weeks)

Today performers are expected to participate in the creation of work that crosses the boundaries of theatre and dance. Yet the performers may not have the necessary training to contribute to their full potential. Through understanding the principles of performance, the development of shared language, vocal and physical exercise and improvised scores participants in this class will explore the potential of the intuitive impulse within spontaneous collective creation.   

A special discount is available for those  who have experience working with Tom in the past. 

Please contact Brittany for details.

Who Should Take This Class? Actors and dancers, performers who have completed their basic training and are interested in interdisciplinary creation, devised theatre, and/or expanding their expressive range.

 

PACKAGE DEAL (Contact Improv & Improvisation): $150

Classes will be held at The University of Winnipeg’s Asper Centre for Theatre & Film, studio 2T15.      

 

CLASS SIZES ARE LIMITED

TO REGISTER

Please contact Brittany at thiessen.brittanym@gmail.com

YLDE /// MORE PETER TROSZTMER info!!!!

Hello all those interested in the January workshop with Peter Trosztmer!

 

PLEASE READ THE NOTES BELOW.

 

Some notes on Peter’s interests in Winnipeg with the proposed January workshop:

 

——— challenging the scope of performance and audience experience with “Box Tape” project

 

——— “Box Tape” project involves improvised landscapes made of packing tape

 

——–  allows for the creation of an environment made by a creative team that is then inhabited by the participants and also the audience.

 

IN A NUTSHELL:

 

——-  The workshop would be a chance for Peter to work with a new creative team from Winnipeg made up of interested members of our community.

 

——-  Workshop participants would be essential in creating this landscape over the week, and inventing different ways to work with it.

 

———  Ideas of performance and audience relationship would be discussed throughout the week.

 

——  And at the end, everyone in the workshop is involved in the performance.

As well he was recognized for the best performance – (The Hour 2006). His work on the multi media work Norman also received many accolades including an Angel Award at the Brighton Festival UK (2009).

———————-A DESCRIPTION OF THE WORKSHOP FROM PETER:

 

Workshop: Box Tape…

 

It seems a lot like we are working with Stigmergy – a mechanism of indirect coordination between agents or actions. The principle is that the trace left in the environment by an action stimulates the performance of a next action, by the same or a different agent. In that way, subsequent actions tend to reinforce and build on each other, leading to the spontaneous emergence of coherent, apparently systematic activity. I think in this way you can say we begin with architecture – we seek it out and try to experience ourselves in relation to it as we work…

 

I am eager to discuss contexts, strategies, concerns – so that we can build our tools and add them to our ever growing toolbox of dance and performance.

 

Using a shit load of clear packing tape and through a shared sense of labor, hospitality, and dance, we invite you to join as we build and dance a sculpture with tape that binds together the social fabric of the performance environment. We will question the idea of ‘product’ by broadening the parameters and perception of what a performance event might look and how the interaction might unfold. A sticky situation…
