Performing Presence: From the Live to the Simulated

john-hand.jpgPerforming Presence: from the live to the simulated: A major AHRC-funded project managed by Nick Kaye (Exeter), Gabriella Giannachi (Exeter), Michael Shanks (Stanford), Mel Slater (UCL). Between February and June 2006, the Centre for Intermedia in the Department of Drama at Exeter University we will be hosting six public one-day practice-research workshops for a public audience conducted by leading theatre and performance artists. Performing Presence is a major, AHRC-funded international collaborative research project running for four years from 1st September 2005.

The project brings together leading researchers from Drama, Archaeology, and Computer Science, in collaboration with internationally known performers and artists, to advance an understanding of the performer’s presence in live, electronically mediated and simulated performance. Integral to the Performing Presence project is the Presence Project Collaboratory, a state-of-the-art collaboratively authored web environment hosted by Stanford University. Our Exeter project website is here.

The workshop series will explore theatrical practices that engage with performer-presence and range across multi-media performance, storytelling, intercultural performer practice, performance art, site-specific theatre and psychophysical performance. All our workshops are free and open to a public audience.

Tim Etchells: 15 February 2006, 12.30-4.30: Tim Etchells is Artistic Director of Forced Entertainment, one of the UK’s most influential companies working across performance, installation and media.

Phillip Zarrilli and Klaus Seewald: 1st March 2006, 12.30-4.30: Phillip Zarrilli is internationally recognised for training actors using a psychophysical process combining yoga, especially Hatha Yoga, and the Asian martial arts Kalarippayattu and Tai Chi Ch’uan. He is professor of Performance Practice at Exeter. Phillip Zarrilli will conduct this workshop in collaboration with Klaus Seewald of Theatre ASOU, Graz, Austria, whose work has been shown widely across Europe and South America.

Mike Pearson and Mike Brookes: 8 March 2006, 12.30-4.30: In a series of performances since 1999, Mike Pearson and Mike Brookes have explored and studio-based practice as a mediation and transposition of specific sites and events.

Vayu Naidu: 22 March 2006, 12.30-4.30: With Vayu Naidu Company, Vayu Naidu’s work explores and articulates the presence of the narrative storyteller, transposing RASA, ‘the essence of performance,’ toward the creation of performer presence
