Domestic Discipline // DIY approaches to experimental performance with Neil Luck
Looking in particular at the role of different technologies in creation and dissemination of sound-based performance, the two workshops – hosted via Zoom – will touch on object theatre, multimedia work, and the ‘homemade’ as vital and radical forms.
In the first workshop, composer-performer Neil Luck will present a colourful overview of experimental domestic-scale performance practices. As well as talking about his own methods, the workshop will highlight peculiar and under-examined cases from an expanded range of disciplines. The group will then participate in a series of interactive experiments that explore “telematic” collaboration, performance to camera, and objects-as-instruments. The group will then collaboratively write a set of provocations and questions to explore and experiment with in the creation of their own new short works.
Participants will come back together in a second session to present and discuss works they have developed in the interim (either live or recorded), with individual feedback from Neil. Through experimenting and sharing collectively in this way, the two workshops hope to expand and explore ideas and techniques in this contemporary and urgent field of practice.
