An investigative journey into cross-disciplinary practices. Live art is classified as a paradoxical conjunction of established disciplines, and this workshop will seek out ways to negotiate the links – and missing links – between different media. After presenting a selection of performance documentation, the workshop will draw from each participant’s personal history, artistic background and media experience. By utilizing material-based explorations, the workshop will intensify as well as amalgamate everyone’s strongest capabilities.
Racquel de Loyola’s work addresses the issues of women, colonization, identity, migration, displacement, capitalism and globalization. Loyola is currently a convener of New World Disorder. She has recently presented performances at the Currency Festival of Performance (New York, 2005), the 7th ASIATOPIA (Bangkok, 2005), Asia Meet Asia (Tokyo, 2006), and the Laokoon Art Festival (Germany, 2004).
