Teaching Resource DVD finished

Our first teaching resource DVD is hot off the press, and now available. If you are interested please contact us.

Uninvited Guests ran a 9 day theatre workshop with a group of 12 sixth form students from Stoke Newington School and Sixth Form in October 2009.

This extensive DVD is a result of those 9 days, providing teaching resources and exercises based on the company's work. It also contains footage of the workshops, the final performance and student feedback on the project.

Performance Re-enactment Society (PRS)

Next week Paul will be presenting Untitled Performance Stills, with the Performance Re-enactment Society and photographer Hugo Glendinning, as part of The Pigs of Today are the Hams of Tomorrow. The exhibition, durational performances and symposium are curated as a collaboration between Plymouth Arts Centre and Marina Abramović.

The Performance Re-enactment Society and Hugo Glendinning gather together international practitioners, researchers, producers, curators, funders and audiences of performance art to form an archive of recollections of live art events. Each participant works with the Society to archive their memories of a past performance work that had a deep impact on them, recording their recollections and creating a still image that captures a memorable moment from the event. These playful re-enactments to camera place the audience in the frame and will be presented as new co-created works, alongside the memories participants have deposited in the collection.

Untitled Performance Stills

Thursday 21st, Friday 22 & Saturday 23 January

We invite you to donate your performance memories and create a performance photograph with us. Bring along any objects, costume or clothing you require to re-make this moment to camera.

On the final day of the symposium and performances the Society will create a tour of The Slaughterhouse drawing on the works you remember, rather than those that are there.

Beginnings

So, we have started the research stage of our new show Make Better Please. We have started to interview people who have some connection with the Bristol Old Vic, or live/work nearby. On Monday we met someone who has an incredible knowledge of the history of BOV and told us ghost stories that would make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

Looking forward to meeting and talking to more people as this unfolds...
