We will use and further develop everybodys' workshop kit by playing some of its games and, on the basis of our experience, discuss the relation between the games and the content produced. Finally, we will end with a lecture-presentation of everybodys by the entire group."
The workshop is intended for young theatre and dance artists, dramaturges and students of social sciences. The price for outside participants is € 40. You can apply by sending an e-mail to [email protected].
"The artists’ collective Everybodys is an open group initiated in 2005, that implements open source strategies in the performing arts. The key motivation for applying the open source methodology is to develop new ways of sharing knowledge and producing specific discourses in the performing arts in order to redefine our conditions of work and the parameters of exchange, to generate heterogeneous works, to escape the restricted access to works, and to deviate traditional conceptions of authorship. Everybodys is an internet platform for texts and discussion, a workshop kit in-progress, encompassing tools and interview-games designed to facilitate discussions on performance work. This kit develops through the "integral feedback" of its usage. Everybody is invited to use it, to develop it further and to join in at www.everybodystoolbox.net. "
"Alice Chauchat is a choreographer and dancer. Her work focuses on the situation of performance as a social event, and on the political relations brought up by such situations: distribution of power, of desires, of empathy and other forces at stake between the concerned individuals. Her interest for possible ways of sharing a situation, artistic responsibility, production means or discursive tools brought her to take part in the development of the open collective Praticable, the internet based active archive everybodystoolbox, or PAF . Alice also works regularly as a performer (e.g. with Jennifer Lacey or Xavier Le Roy), artistic assistant (e.g. with Isabelle Schad or Litó Walkey) and teacher (e.g. Stockholm College of Dance, Eks-scena in Zagreb, etc.). Since 2007, Alice has been working on Collective Sensations, an ongoing research project about the relations between sensation, imagination and language in dance, by the means of practice and performative proposals. Between 2010 and 2012, she is co-directing Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers."
