Performance as Practice | solo and collaborative development is a practical workshop, focused on inter-disciplinary performance. PaP is open to dance, movement, performance art, and improvisation artists of all levels, professional and university, who are interested in further developing a solo and collaborative body-based art practices.

Participants will be introduced to various approaches to creating a personal performance practice, including: concept development, physical and mental preparation, experimentation, and execution. We will focus on different aspects, elements, disciplines, modes and/or methods of performance. The goal is to identify and develop a personal practice which is applicable to solo and group situations.
