Performance and Performativity
Samah Hijawi

6-22 April 2016
Every Wednesday and Saturday from 2:00-7:00pm

In this workshop by Samah Hijawi, participants come together to explore performance and performativity through practical and theoretical elements. Using our own creative practices as a starting point, we will develop mini-performances for each session, starting from a new idea every time.

In each workshop we read, perform, and reflect,we aim to expand the meaning of performance through everyone’s different practices by becoming involved in each other’s work, borrowing to make the next mini-performance. This means we have to be prepared to be spontaneous and playful, to leave our artistic ego at the door, to think and question critically, and to perform every time we met.
