After Violence: Workshops
_REMIX will run two workshops for members of the LGBTQI+ community to share experiences and inform the creation of their new Baroque drag performance, After Violence.
Held on Saturday 3rd November at the Sackler Centre, Dulwich Picture Gallery, the workshops will share work-in-progress, exploring creative practice around queer interpretation in music, theatre and performance art.
Workshop One: Gender and Song
Led by composer Benjamin Tassie, participants will work with non-binary vocalist Ella Taylor to explore the process of ‘queering’ in vocal performance. Ella will share their work interpreting songs by Baroque composer John Dowland for _REMIX’s After Violence. Participants will be invited to share their own experiences around gender and masculinity, and to respond to the work-in-progress.
Workshop Two: Masculinity and Movement
Led by writer and director FXXX BXXXX, participants will work with drag queen and performance artist Rhys Hollis (Rhys’s Pieces) to explore gender and masculinity in movement and drag. Rhys and Finn will share their work responding to songs by Baroque composer John Dowland for _REMIX’s After Violence. Participants will be invited to share their own experiences around gender and masculinity, and to respond to the work-in-progress.
Participation in the workshop will include time to respond to Ribera’s monumental canvas, Apollo Flaying Marsyas - on display at Dulwich Picture Gallery as part of ‘Ribera: The Art of Violence’ - in front of which After Violence will be performed on November 23rd.
Space on the workshops is limited, so if you would like to take part, please email email@example.com.
