Interfaces – site-hacking: critical urban performance practice
Place: Goethe Institut Bulgaria, Budapeshta St. 1, 1000 Sofia, Bulgaria
Open call for participation.
The workshop will be held in English and is open to all levels, but please send a line about your previous experience with performance art, so the workshop can be planned the best way possible. Duration 3 hours on a selected location in Sofia.
Body Interfaces workshop centers around the possibilities of analyzing and recapturing urban
space through performance practices and thus hacking its normative
functions through the
use of the body and its relation to site and environment. The
workshop will explore territories,
observe and intervene! Time will be used as a central element in
structuring the form
of the interventions as well as time is connected to the way the body
will use movement in
urban space. Referring to the method of Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen's
Body Interfaces research, the body will be used as a data-gathering
tool to explore places and interact with these. It introduces spatial
theory and tactical intervention practices, where the body will be a
technological tool that
can be used as a critical instrument. In the area where the workshop
will take place initial hierarchies
and power structures will be deconstructed through physical
engagement with the selected
site, facilitating a type of data-mining with the body.
The workshop will be in three parts:
1. Introduction to the method and to critical spatial practices.
2. Observation and registration – uncovering how the site is used, what is its characteristics and how is it systematized.
Intervention – how can we as performers hack into the use and the
structure of space and
create critical situations and potentially disrupt the use and the
thought of space and
