Open Space: Collective emotions & performativity

Date: 25/06/2018 18:30-21:30
Location: Stichting Beien, Meeuwenstraat 160, Enschede
Organized by Forum Theater Enschede

About the workshop:
In today’s open space we investigate the role of emotions in collaborative practices with HIROKO TSUCHIMOTO. This performance workshop provides an opportunity for participants to become more aware of modalities of emotion through physical and conversational exercises. We investigate the subjects of individual/group feeling, meta-emotions, emotional performativity, (limits of) empathy and (non-) existence of collective emotions. We also conduct discussions about topics including: identity, sense of belonging, mob mentality, mass-panic, group-based shame, membership guilt, etc. The workshop leader navigates the participants toward creating intimate conversations and collaborations, and carrying out group performances in the public sphere. The aim of the workshop is to facilitate critical observation of the participants own emotions and performativities, and to give them sufficient confidence to present public performances.
