Performance Art, T'ai Chi with Richard Layzell

Sun 28 - Sat 10 Aug 2019 & Sun 11 Aug - Sun 18 Aug 2019

Performance Art is for everyone, an adventure in time and space, a fantastical challenge, a chance to discover and celebrate our unique creative selves.

In this four-day course we will explore together this special place where many different art forms meet: sculpture, voice, poetry, creative writing, movement, sound and costume, finding an area of interest that is both comfortable and exciting for each person. We can then become playful and mischievous within our chosen fields, collaborate and support each other. We will then be in a position to explore how we can relate to the many spectacular locations in and around Atsitsa and also think about our potential audiences.

We will record these unique experiences, memories and achievements through video, photography and sound recording, to take home and treasure, undoubtedly surprising ourselves.

Richard is internationally considered an innovator in Performance Art and has taught master classes in this field for many years, all over the world, from Beijing to Birmingham. He is known for his supportive and empowering style of teaching.
