Contemporary Performance Practices with SITI Company and Troubleyn / Jan Fabre
CCA’s Contemporary Performance Practices (CPP) program aims to acknowledge and expand the performing arts canon, tracking current trends and discovering new ones, for the benefit of contemporary performers and performance-makers. We will be offering intensive workshops, taught by prominent international practitioners and educators, focusing on developing strategies for jump-starting new work from scratch by layering compelling visuals, vivid relationships, coherent text, and propulsive narrative.
This Summer’s edition of CPP is a two-week summer intensive training geared towards a broad range of performing arts students and practitioners, from 1 - 13 July 2019. On behalf, of CCA, it is my privilege to invite as our faculty senior members of two of the world’s leading performing arts companies, Anne Bogart’s SITI Company (New York, USA) and Jan Fabre’s TROUBLEYN/JAN FABRE (Antwerp, Belgium.)
Taking place in the historic Filodrammatica venue in the center of the picturesque, sun-drenched coastal city of Rijeka, Croatia, each teaching artist will spend one entire week focusing on intensive training and knowledge-sharing of their companies’ respective methodologies. While Bogart’s and Fabre’s philosophies approach performance-based work from different angles, both companies are deeply committed to developing truthful, compelling, rigorous visions for the stage, honoring the performer’s intuition and intelligence to advance their development as co-creators rather than merely interpreters of work. I chose these two companies for our program’s inaugural edition, as I find their visions to complement each other in a way that will afford participating artists a well-rounded preparation, inspiring them to generate their own unique creations. We look forward to welcoming you in Croatia this Summer!
