Provocation and Invitation? The Newbridge Project: Gateshead : NOV 14th 6-8PM

What is the difference between Provocation and Invitation?

Priya Mistry (whatsthebigmistry) is currently working with provocation and invitation in workshop and performance practices, and this event will be fantastic for those with an interest in performance, those who work with people (in whatever form that takes) and anyone interested in expanding their approach to devising workshops.

In this session Priya will explore the use of objects, performative actions, visual, sound, word languages and other languages to set up provocation.

She’ll navigate what it means to make invitation, set up spaces for invitation, and look at approaches to engaging in ideas and tackling key questions or experiences.

The ways in which provocation & invitation might meet, be that in workshop settings or in performance practice will be addressed, as will how invitations are made to individuals, groups, or a mix. The flow and engagement of workshop or performance from beginning-middle-end will be considered.
