Skewed Visions, in partnership with the Cyprus-based multicultural experimental theater group, Rooftop Theatre, and the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research (AHDR) announce Shift, a short weekend of FREE performance exchange workshops for artists of all disciplines interested in contemporary performance and the exploration of locational identity.
Workshops will be held on Saturday January 11 and Sunday January 12, 2014 from 9am – 4pm at the Home for Cooperation in Nicosia and are open to contemporary theater artists, dance artists, visual artists, musical performers and artists in general interested in learning about international methods for exploring, researching and incorporating aspects of landscape and community into their own work. Artists will have a chance to share their own ideas and learn from both Rooftops and Skewed Visions theater professionals and incorporate fresh, new international perspectives into their own way of thinking and working.
Located in the Nicosia, Cyprus, UN Buffer Zone, the Home for Cooperation (H4C) provides a shred space for inter-communal cooperation and dialogue. Hosting a library and archive, conference and exhibition spaces, and offices, the H4C is the first centre in Cyprus to promote the collective efforts of civil society in engaging in historical inquiry, contemporary understanding and peace building. As a landmark building located within the Ledra Palace crossing, the H4C with its programs and partners, aims to foster intercultural dialogue and understanding in Cyprus and globally.
Workshops are funded by a Global Connections grant from the Theatre Communications Group.
