Open Choreography Evening: Talking about Consent in Participatory Performance
Thurs 7 Sept

As part of his Open Choreography residency, Hamish MacPherson brings to Siobhan Davies Studios a semi-regular meetup for anyone concerned with consent in participatory performance, larps, workshops and rehearsals.

The meet up is facilitated by Hamish MacPherson and Sarah Jury and operates as a space for attendees to own it and use as they wish.

The group deals with questions such as: How does an audience member consent to participate? Are the terms of participation calibrated collectively? Can audiences and participants give informed consent and exercise their autonomy? What kind of power structures are being produced when makers overlook these questions?

Meetings might involve sharing techniques and case studies, testing or discussing work in progress, producing and sharing resources, and talking about principles. They are a mixture of pre-arranged items and open discussion

The meet up is organised by Hamish MacPherson and Sarah Jury and originated at Res

Public Workshop
