Collective Feminist Practice workshop

Presented by Vitalstatistix and THE RABBLE

Expression-of-interest are now closed.

The Collective Feminist Practice workshop is an exceptional professional development opportunity for South Australian feminist performance makers, and artists who are working within their own performance collectives.

In June, Vitalstatistix presents the South Australian premiere of YES, produced by Performing Lines. The show is an unflinching investigation into the dynamics of power, consent, knowledge, and truth, by feminist theatre powerhouses THE RABBLE.

As part of the YES season, THE RABBLE and Vitalstatistix present a three-day gathering and workshop around collective feminist practice, for emerging to mid-career artists in South Australia.

Acclaimed for their visually ambitious, political, feminist and formally experimental work, THE RABBLE create theatre through an improvisational methodology using poetry, prose, image, tableaus and gesture. They aim to radically repopulate familiar stories with female voices and aesthetics and their works often point at subterranean feminist concepts in iconic stories from folklore and literature.

The workshop will explore feminist performance making and collectivism, alongside key feminist questions such as how violence and consent are portrayed artistically. The workshop will suit makers across a range of live artforms including theatre makers and actors, choreographers and dancers, and performance artists.

Ten South Australian artists will be selected from a simple expression-of-interest process. Selected artists will be paid a $200 honorarium to assist with their participation.

For your expression-of-interest you will be asked to provide:

1/ A cover letter that outlines why you would like to undertake this opportunity (1-2 pages only)
2/ Your artist biography or abbreviated CV (1 page only)
3/ Up to two URLs to artistic support material (optional)

Expression-of-interest are now closed.
