Compass: Free Live Art Practice Workshop in Sheffield

in association with Point Blank Theatre and the Riverside
Saturday 21st May 2011


Compass is an 18-month project that aims to stimulate the growth of live art in Yorkshire & the Humber. Compass’ professional development programme offers a range of approaches to support practitioners, programmers, curators, producers and academics through practical skills development, networking and platforms for critical debate. The next Compass workshop takes place this February in York.

Are you…

· Interested in developing your own personal performance practice?
· Want to explore a range of performance approaches and techniques?
· Keen to work with practitioners from different disciplines and backgrounds?

Then take part in the second of three practical live art workshops taking place across the region, led by experienced solo cross-disciplinary artist Sarah Spanton.

This workshop is for artists from all backgrounds: fine art, contemporary performance, digital/time-based practices, sound-art, contemporary dance: who’s practice includes making or wanting to make live art/contemporary performance, who want to perform in their own work or perform with others. Aimed at both emerging and mid-career artists, each workshop will be tailored specifically to all those taking part.

Participant comments from previous workshops:

‘Really great atmosphere, explanation of activities and overall delivery’

‘Introduced me to new ways of developing an idea / concept into something more – that can be changed and developed’

‘Elements of the workshop will support my development of upcoming projects’

‘A very stimulating and enjoyable day. I especially enjoyed the diverse mix of ages and genders and experiences’
