Sound in Experimental Theatre
Workshop series. Three sessions.
Designed to be a mutually beneficial learning experience, rather than conventional lectures, the series is catered for all Sound Art (LCC) + Performance Design and Practice (CSM) students with an interest in sound for theatre and live performance.
The sessions discuss a variety of contexts relating to sound in performance making: interaction, immersion and audience experience… touching on the aesthetic legacies of the 20th century avant-garde and the emergence of postdramatic performance. The purpose of the workshops is to bring together artists across disciplines to share their interests and experiences in a non-hierarchical manner, within a setting that encourages experimentation.
“The distortion of ideas, models and theories when they are taken outside their disciplinary context is not only a necessary risk but also - more importantly - a possible source of invention. The perturbation of these disciplinary ‘messages’ comes with potentially unexpected insights that may allow alternative ways of understanding phenomena and their operations.” (Thompson, 2017)
