Hi I am Natalie. I am a third year BA Fine Art PTBM student at Wimbledon College of Arts. I am aiming to make one performance collaboration a week.
These collaborations will take the form of improvised performances under a set of constraints in a 'performance space' that I will control in Film and Video room at Wimbledon College of Arts.
These will be durational performances, playful spaces, the only consistent rule will be that we cannot communicate using words. I plan to advertise the performances so people can pop in and out during the time but as its in Wimbledon and it will be in the evening it may be the case that only one or two people pop in but these performances are more experiments and the audience/s are less important.
The performances will last for one hour and fifteen minutes (19:00-20:15) on Tuesday evenings starting on Tuesday 11th and running for as many weeks as I feel it needs to evolve.
Each week will use the product of the previous week as a starting point.
Maybe I would like to work just me and you or maybe I'd like to group you up with other people/ other skill sets to play. We'll see how it evolves.
I want to work only with people with performance experience but I'm open to what that might mean. If you think you know somebody please get in touch.
I'm particularly interested to work with.
- a contemporary dancer
- a clown
- a singer who can do vocal improvisation
- an older performer
- children/ younger performers
I also need good documentation of the work so photographers/ filmmakers etc. Or perhaps we can be more experimental with documentation - sound recording/ writing/ drawing/ interviews etc etc. I want this to be a truly open project so whatever ideas you have get involved and come and play.
I will need performers from 18:30 - 20:30 so that there is time to get ready and also to clear up and write a thought down after the performance and that's all the time I will ask you for. Just 2 hours to make something magical happen and then you're free! Obviously any work you produce/ documentation etc will be yours as long as everybody is in agreement.
