Learn how to create live performances that incorporate video under the instruction of Wynne Greenwood, the feminist performance and video artist best known for Tracy + the Plastics. Participants will explore – through lecture, screenings, discussion, in-class improvisation and group work – how contemporary artists use pre-recorded video in live performance. You will consider what video is, what performance is, how video can be used to develop the set, narrative and character of a performance, and how performance can bring spontaneity to video. Working with found and pre-taped images as well as video images taped within the workshop, you will develop short performances that include and integrate video projection. The materials and exercises presented are intended for a diverse group of participants and accommodate a wide range of experience and skill level. No previous video production experience required.
