SYLVIE TOURANGEAU | HOW IS YOUR SENSE OF THE PERFORMATIVE?
Considered a pioneer of performance in Canada, Sylvie Tourangeau proposes this new workshop focusing on the personalization of our performative actions in different contexts and intensities of attitude and presence. The focus will be put on the nature of our motivations in creating, the awareness of what inhabits and distinguishes us, the clarity of our on-the-spot decision-making as well as the transformative effect generated by our engagement with each of our gestures.
Thanks to a learning process composed of practical exercises, role-playing, real experiences in urban space, “presentations” following instructions, active commentary, the participants will be able to experiment with the full potential of their performative sense, regardless of the specific or habitual form their art takes.
In performance art since 1978, Sylvie Tourangeau (artist, author, workshop facilitator and curator) is considered a pioneer of performance art in Canada. She has published some sixty articles on a wide range of performers.
