Performing Objects – Workshop I

PAF, St Erme, FR

PAF is based in St Erme, 150km north-east of Paris, France, between Reims and Laon.

PAF (=PerformingArtsForum) is a place for the professional and not-yet professional practitioners and activists in the field of performing arts, visual art, literature, music, new media and internet, theory and cultural production, and scientists who seek to research and determine their own conditions of work. PAF is for people who can motorize their own artistic production and knowledge production not only responding to the opportunities given by the institutional market. Initiated and run by artists, theoreticians and practitioners themselves, PAF is a user-created, user-innovative informal institution. Neither a production-house and venue, nor a research-center, it is a platform for everyone who wants to expand possibilities and interests in his/her own working practice.

Paulo Guerreiro will guide the first workhop with our group relating to Performing Objects at PAF. We will experiment with performance exercises and instructions specially developed by Paolo in relation to Performing Objects.

Paulo Guerreiro is a portuguese artist living and working in Belgium. He studied dance choreography in the Superior School of Dance in Lisbon and worked with several choreographers around Europe. His personal work takes very heterogeneous forms (performance, video, art installations...) with the body as a main core and as been presented in different theaters, museums and galleries throughout Europe. Lately he is also working as coach for different organizations such as De Veerman, l'O and Cacao Bleu, in workshops around body awareness, creativity and movement.
