Susan Mar Landau's LUDUS, "who asks what when and why" will explore the act of questioning as both a generative and critical tool for performance makers. The creation of a performance work demands different kinds of dramaturgical questions for the artist to consider: What are these questions? Who asks them? When and why?
With Susan, participants will explore what form and import these questions might take. The Lab will draw reference from Roland Barthesʼ essay "The Death of the Author" as well as from an in-depth conversation with SOAK artist Lucy Kerr about her own artistic process in creating her piece "you are nothing/you were all i had."
Along with collective discussions, each participant will have the opportunity and support to investigate and identify questions that could serve their own creative process.
As part of this LUDUS Lab, participants will be asked to attend Lucy Kerr's performance of "you were nothing/you were all i had" at the LEIMAY Friends and Fellows Showcase on June 8th at 8pm.
Friday, June 16th, 6pm-10pm
Saturday, June 17th, 4pm-7pm
Space is limited. Online registration required.
