In this workshop shared practices are a site for investigation and encounter between participants.

Theory and practice, talking, doing and reflecting are interwoven threads of the process of making. Here, choreography is an expanded form - a flexible set of tools for time-based and relational interdisciplinary work. The workshop studio becomes a laboratory in which participating artists rigorously test their own systems of assigning value and meaning through and with their bodies. Participants will explore a collection of exercises to produce material and activate questions about the borders between sense and sound and physical gesture and utterance.

The workshop is ideal for practitioners from any background who are interested in exploring collaborative, interdisciplinary approaches to creation and investigating choreography as expanded practice.

Public Recordings is a group of experimental artists who work collaboratively - drawing on choreographic strategies, embodied action, language, sound, objects, framing and architectural space - to create a shared language for live performance. Through our ongoing facilitation, we expose our creative process not as something to replicate, but as an invitation to question embodied concepts in one’s work.

Choreographies of Encounter is co-facilitated by a group of artists from the what we are saying project, each bringing their own experience and interests to the processes they will share.

This workshop is made possible with the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council & the Canada Council for the Arts.
