Rhubaba Gallery and Studios
Introduction-to-Performance Vol.2 is a discussion oriented, weekend long workshop looking at performance art histories from around the world. It has been devised by performance artist Gordon Douglas as part of No School! Rhubaba’s learning programme inspired by desperate measures.
Drawing from the successes of the first volume with students of Edinburgh College, Introduction-to-Performance Vol.2 works from an entirely new curriculum– a longlist of 120 performances, actions, and protests that we will rigorously and playfully deconstruct. As well as being an opportunity to get reacquainted with the rich and diverse histories of performance, the weekend will be a platform to practice and gain confidence in speaking critically about performance in a fun environment.
Over the weekend, we’ll adopt a technique inspired by theatre shortlisting methods and popular education exercises, to debate the merits, ethics and values of performance works from the 1950s to present day. Through argument and conversation, we’ll collectively compile a shortlist of ‘good’ performance, showcased at an awards ceremony on the Sunday evening.
