PLAYING BY THE RULES?
WEDNESDAY the 28th of August
Kl. O9.3O – 16.3O
Workshop moderator: Jeppe Lajer/AKTØR, actor and certified facilitator from International Association of Facilitators.
Immersive theatre, where the audience has left the spectator seats, plays an extensive role in festival programming, and this reasonably new approach has made a big impact in producing everywhere, even in big classical institutions.
In immersive pieces many of the unwritten rules of theatre are broken. Artists need to work consciously with the creation of new rules and artistic principles, and how they are communicated to the audience.
About the workshop
This day we will experience and reflect on how different established artists from the Danish and international immersive scene work with own inner rules in their work, and how they communicate their principles to the audience.
Participants will work on the floor with the artists, and throughout the day they will explore games of reflection, dialogue and how simple rules can open new worlds!
This day is targeted artists, creative producers, students and everyone interested in participation.
SHOWS Tuesday evening
The event is designed as an intense and collective experience with one sleepover at Waves Festival. It starts with two immersive shows: Tuesday night: Bodies in the Dark by Elephants Laugh and The Time Being by Cantabile 2 – the organizer of Waves Festival since 1987.
