11am–1pm / Bulegoa z/b, Bilbao / The workshop is followed by an open rehearsal and performance at La Fundición on 25 October 2017.
A workshop on presence and truth-telling in in 2017. The ‘Performative’ is a concept which has been understood in many ways over the last decades. In this workshop Cally Spooner uses it to describe the cliches, protocols and sound-bites that governing or managerial powers create and distribute in order to control and quantify subjects. This workshop asks in what ways language might be able to function *other* than the Performative; where we might gain—rather than lose— knowledge, and build—rather than erode—vocabulary, through less semiotic, more bodily means.
Cally Spooner’s presentation in Bilbao is produced in collaboration with the Bilbao BAD Festival
