Full of practical insights, advice, and space for discussion with participants, in the first half of this course Louise O’Kelly, Founding Director & Curator of Block Universe will speak about performance art and the transition from a physical to digital festival, as well as highlighting concerns of producing and supporting artists when working in this realm. Artists Ekin Bernay & Rowdy SS will share their personal practice and the experience of working together on Homework for Block Universe’s virtual festival Sessions last year.

The second half of the course will offer the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills of performance work, taking case studies from Ekin & Rowdy’s recent online presentations. Offering the floor out to students to share their concerns in presenting or adapting their work, this course will provide a unique opportunity to gain insight and feedback from practising artists in an intimate setting.
