Behaviour Swarm: Exploring Performative Practices
June 3–July 5, 2018

Led by Michael Portnoy and Kira Nova, Behaviour Swarm will explore a series of different modules to continuously fracture your sense of self; behaviour, speech, ideas, your relation to your body, others, objects, and your environment. We’ll use theatre, dance, and performance techniques to develop your tools for inventiveness, high-level nonsense, slapstick, presence, expressivity, and intuition.

BAiR encourages experimentation and risk-taking, via access to shared production facilities and knowledgeable staff who are available to provide technical support and assistance.
