Artsadmin Weekenders

Six intensive weekend workshops with artists renowned for their approaches to making, facilitation and participation.

Artsadmin's Weekenders are open to all adult practitioners regardless of levels of experience; all that is required is an openness to meet, talk, play, perform and collaborate. Come to one or all -- each Weekender operates as a stand-alone while the series as a whole offers an opportunity to work with an outstanding range of artists.

Weekenders will be led by Graeme Miller, Stacy Makishi, Chris Goode, Lone Twin, Anne Bean and Blast Theory.  Places are strictly limited to 16 participants per workshop and workshop costs are subsidised by Artsadmin to help us keep costs for artists affordable.

Tickets and booking:

£60 per weekend

or book by telephone on 020 7650 2350 (Mon-Fri 1-6pm)

Artsadmin Weekenders:

Chris Goode

"As theatre and performance makers we can find ourselves talking a lot about space – empty space, found space, safe space... But this may tend to obscure a vital truth: people don’t live in spaces, they live in places. How, then, might we create theatrical places within and beyond the performance space? How do we make theatre that’s fit to live in? Taking our cue from ideas around liminality and cultural dissidence, this workshop will explore the meaning and significance of place and the possibility of truly inhabiting one’s work. The weekend is suitable for makers from all disciplines and backgrounds, though the core proposition relates particularly to experimental theatre. We’ll work together, talk together, and hopefully, ultimately, live together (just for a bit)." -- Chris Goode

Saturday 28 + Sunday 29 November. 11am - 5pm.
Please be sure that you can attend both days

Steve Whitson Studio, Toynbee Studios, 28 Commercial St, London E1 6AB
