Devised Performance for Camera with Caroline Doherty
Saturday August 12th, 1-3pm
$7 members / $10 general
Artist and Workspace Resident Caroline Doherty will lead a workshop/master class on devised performance, exploring the inherent differences, strengths, and challenges of live performance, mediated performance, and performance for the camera. Participants will work together through a series of movement exercises and experiments, developing strategies for building a score of actions, a performed narrative, or a framework for a short performance. Participants will also discuss the possibilities of using text, props, and set/location as tools.

This workshop is part of the Workspace Residency. Workspace Residency is a unique artist residency that supports local, regional and national media artists and researchers who are working on projects in film, video, audio, interactive media and emerging technologies in any stage of production. Initiated in 2016 by Squeaky Wheel Film and Media Art Center in Buffalo, New York, in collaboration with local partners Buffalo Game Space, Buffalo Lab, and Silo City, the residency provides support through equipment, facilities, and technical support for artists experimenting across a range of old and new technologies, such as video, sound, digital platforms, interactivity, virtual reality, and 3D printing. Community outreach and public engagement components include presentation and education activities. More information on the summer 2017 residents can be found here.
