Queer Performance Workshop and Creative Development opportunity with Scottee

Queer Performance Workshop and Creative Development opportunity with Scottee

16 – 21: An imperfect introduction to queer performance

Workshop Date: Thursday 8 June, 6 – 8pm
Duffield Studio, Clore Learning Centre
This workshop is available to 16–21-year-olds
£15 (Bursaries are available)
Price includes tickets
to see Angels in America Part One on Monday 12 June and Part Two on Tuesday 13 June. 

This is an opportunity to hear from, chat with and get excited by a top-notch group of artists from a variety of performance backgrounds, whose work might be described as all sorts of things, one of which is queer.

The conversation will focus on queerness as an approach to making performance, as opposed to its significance when discussing sexuality and identity, though sexuality and identity is bound to crop up over the course of the evening. It invariably does.

This is an event for anyone excited by the subject matter, irrespective of prior knowledge or sexuality.

Please note you must be available for the workshop and both performances to take part. We’re expecting this event to be popular so we’re offering places by application only. Applications will close on Sunday 28 May. Apply now.

Bursaries
The standard price for this event is £15. We would never want cost to prevent anyone from taking part. A limited number of full and part-funded bursary places, reserved for those with the greatest need, are available. If you would like to apply for one, please indicate this when you fill in the form.


16 – 21: Angels in America – A Queer Response

Workshop Date:

Saturday 15 July, 10 – 5pm
Sunday 16 July, 10 – 5pm
John Lyons Education Studio
This workshop is available to 16–21-year-olds

This is a free project and includes a ticket to see Angels in America Part One on Tuesday 11 July and Part Two on Thursday 13 July. You must be available for both sessions and to watch both performances of Angels in America to take part.

Artist Scottee is inviting LGBT+ young people to respond to Angels in America.

 

Over one weekend you’ll create work in response, inspired and influenced by the play and its themes. You’ll be given exercises that will help you create autobiographical short performance, exploring and the lives of LGBT+ young people now. You’ll collaborate with other creative young queer and trans people as well as having the chance to exchange ideas with queer artists, companies and an invited audience, for an informal, low-key sharing.

We’re looking for LGBT+ identifying folk between 16-21(ish) to apply.
To apply complete this form by Sunday 25 June.

Bursaries
We would never want the cost of a project to prevent anyone from taking part. A limited number of travel bursaries are available. If you would like to apply for one, please indicate this on the form when you apply.
