8-DAY WORKSHOP WITH SHANNON GILLEN + JASON CIANCIULLI
alter ego is an eight day psychological marathon where performers will lose their grip on themselves and become someone else. wearing different clothes - dealing with and subverting reality in new ways. this workshop will offer no comfortable exit to the research process, character exploration will travel from intense movement research in the studio into the practice of daily life. participants will be challenged to carry physical and psychological propositions out into the world at large in a devised psychoactive scavenger hunt of impersonations, interviews, surreal movement in strange spaces, happenstance interactions, chase scenes, speeches shared with strangers, hallucinatory fits of lying and bare bone confessions. it will get messy. it will be hard to contain. and all of this madness will come together in a restless crescendo of combustible material in the studio. by the end you will have a second self - a new person to haunt your flesh and your dancing in the future. immersive character study / partnering / movement research / monologues and scene work will be explored. participants will be required to bring a costume to work with for the duration.
