Performance Lab Workshop Series

Performance Lab Workshops are a series of events in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. It is facilitated by Clara J:son Borg and Amy Pickles, and supported by funding from Gemeente Rotterdam and hosts WORM Rotterdam, who give their UBIK Theatre space to the workshops. Between September and December 2019, three invited artists share aspects of their performance practice in educational workshops.

In 2020 we are taking time to educate ourselves, to listen, to rest and wait. We are waiting for a time when our workshops are possible, considering saftey, and useful, considering who and what we need to learn from.

In 2021 the programme will consist of three workshops with artist Elisa Ferrari, artist and educator Samah Hijawi and dramaturge and actor Renée Copraij.

This website presents debris from past workshops, as records of the events and as tools we hope an extended audience can use. It is a site comprised of reflections, advice and techniques for working with people, working with your body and your voice.

Click on the names of each artist and you will be taken to an account from them, a workshop participant and Amy and Clara as facilitators.
