Early January 2017 an artists residency courtesy of Artspace/Lifespace.
The aim; to work with practitioners from a range of disciplines,
the call for collaborators with Theatre Bristol
and for me to explore further working as a social artist, as defined by Jean Houston.
"Social Artistry is the art of enhancing human capacities in the light of social complexity.
It seeks to bring new ways of thinking, being and doing to social challenges in the world."
This is a pilot project that aims to explore
the cultural narratives around women and bravery through a range of methodologies.
Lifting the lid on our cultural beliefs, explore how we can
CHANGE THE STORY
In a world where women still experience both discrimination and challenge
in both overt and subtle ways, some of it experienced from other women,
we are interested in unpacking the stories we tell ourselves and the tales we tell others,
deconstructing our individual and cultural narratives
and exploring how we can CHANGE THE STORY . . .
Diving in to deconstruct . . .
courageous behaviour or character.
"perhaps I'll get a medal for bravery"
pluckiness, braveness, valour,
audacity, boldness dauntlessness, doughtiness,
informal - bottle, ballsiness;
"he received a medal for bravery"
Are you ready to dive in?
Working with a live and exploratory lab in collaboration with other practitioners,
to mix together personal & professional development techniques with movement, performance,
dialogue and reflective journaling.
With the initial aim of producing a showcase event encompassing performance and discussion.
