Marisa Carnesky leads Creation of Character and Persona in Contemporary Performance workshop that uses warm-ups,  costumes (all provided), movement, writing and drama games to explore how you identify, create and devise new performing personas and performance material that draws on your favourite references and visions from popular performance but with an activist heart.

This workshop will also introduce some the themes explored on the new BA Contemporary and Popular Performance led by Marisa launching at Tramshed this autumn as part of Rose Bruford's undergraduate programmes.

Plus a unique live conversation on stage between artists about what makes cabaret political, the notion of the collective in the arts and the making of scenes.

Featuring -

Silly Man by Tallulah Haddon

Silly Man, is the art tour you never knew you needed. Allow tour guide, Mr. Silly Man to immerse you in our exciting, new interactive installation. Part guided tour, part striptease. Expect art history, deep analysis and squirting.

Tallulah's work is invested in creating provocative queer futures, through magical comical worlds. Their work is often autobiographical and stems from an interest to use the personal as political. Weaving clown and surreal comedy with a body-based live art practice.

Trigger and Content Warnings: The performance includes mess, spit and nudity. This is a performance where you will be asked to physically participate. If you aren’t comfortable or are not able to, you can remain where you are. You can also leave at any point. There will be a camera in the space. You are not being recorded but you may watch the TVs at any point.
