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.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
