BIRGIT WIEGER

Workshop:

Fluffing Up The Nothing

Object work with Pillows

Thursday 2/5     13:15 - 15:45

In this workshop for body & objects, we will examine the performative qualities of "pillows".

We explore the physical properties, their inherent movements and deal with how our objects can be transformed. 

How do pillows become interactive stage sets and performance installations?

How does the material change our movement possibilities?

How is movement reduced?

What new qualities of movement do they produce? 

In addition, we explore how our material becomes a stage partner and its use as a multi-functional element, such as a prop, costume ... 

Please bring 2 or more pillows if possible.

Performance:

Fact & Fancy
