Location: Ca Phe Thu Bay Tre, Ho Chi Minh City

In June 2019, Sàn Art delivers the second edition of Uncommon Pursuits, this time, as a workshop centered on the intersection between visual art curation and theatrical production through hands-on theater-making exercises and intensive discussions about the performative body, sound, space, and time.

The workshop instructors come from a wide range of visual and performative disciplines, including theater and film studies, physical theater, Noh acting, new media, theater design and theater production. Through the process of presenting and making together, the insights and skills transferred to the workshop are reflected upon, contested, refined and integrated into each participant’s project. The class learn how lessons on staging, moving, directing, synergizing and carrying a production to its fruition could enhance each participant’s personal strategies as they embark on various uncommon pursuits, whether in the field of performance or visual art, whether as curators, producers, actors, visual artists, writers or art viewers.
