ArtesMobiles @ Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space
Workshop - Immersive Performance Space and the Performers Body by Jan Hladil, Birk Schmithüsen & Nina Maria Stemberger
10. - 16. June 2023
H40, Bubenské nábřeží 306/13, 170 00 Prag 7
This workshop is designed to explore the potential of theatre technology as an independent entity that interacts with performers. Through the use of lights, lasers, and generative visuals, participants will investigate how these elements can become roles themselves, supporting performers and interacting with them as digital counterparts. The workshop includes a 7-day technical component that introduces participants to moving head lights, show lasers, and generative motion graphics, while the 4-day performance workshop explores how the body interacts with space and technology. The workshop will discuss performative strategies on how to interact with technology, including the use of LiDAR laser position tracking, and participants will develop their own concepts for interactive installations. The workshop will culminate in a performative intervention, showcasing participants’ work.
Since 1967, the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space presents the best works in scenography with emphasis on the self-sufficiency of this artistic field.
PQ does not operate merely as a festival, gradually it has evolved into a platform, which explores progressive approaches, new media, virtual spaces and interdisciplinary relations.
