Welcome to CONVERSATION LABORATORY, an open platform where you can experience performative conversations with the 1st year students at The Market Theatre Laboratory.
This is the final presentation of a performance workshop (5-12 October The Market Theatre Laboratory) at led by Hiroko Tsuchimoto. The workshop approaches the subject of emotion/participation in both the analysis of performativity and the practice of audience engagement. The students explore the structure of social interaction and conversation and learn how to apply their findings to artistic practices. They also carry out collective actions researching collaborative/antagonistic engagement in the public realm and obtain critical tools to investigate regimes of normative control over the emotions, identities, and behaviors present in contemporary society.
The event is warmly open to everyone. Come and talk to us!
