October 2013

Professional dance, theatre and performance artists from across the globe came together for one week in an abandoned factory building in Brussels. We met and formed a temporary community within which we played, questioned, and performed together exploring the interaction of improvisation and movement, ego and community.

This residency made a huge impression on my social practice work. It challenged me to both deepen and question my practice. At the residency many of the participants were struggling with the leadership present. Words used to describe the leader were: tyrant, dictator etc. It became clear to many of the participants that we had to construct our own sense of community in order to create a successful artistic process. In response to these issues, I facilitated a workshop using tools from Theatre of the Oppressed to process our experiences both within the residency itself and our diverse experiences with political oppression.
