The Other Way Works are taking part in a week of workshops at mac this week. The week explores ‘encounter’ performance – performance for an audience of one, or intimate or interactive performance. As you can see, lots of names for this small field of performance, and lots of ways of going about it. Breathe are also taking part, as well as a selection of other practitioners, and the whole week is being facilitated by Amanda from Stan’s Cafe. It’s really refreshing to have time to play around with ideas, to discuss this kind of practice with other artists who make this kind of thing themselves, and to work practically with new people. There’s a sharing of ideas and a chance to discuss things on Friday, drop us an email if you’d like to come along.
