Digital Traces – Workshop with Flexer & Sandiland

Draw to Perform 5 – DRAWin, International festival for drawing performance. 4.4.2018, Fabrica Gallery, Brighton, UK.

Movement & interactive projection workshop/installation for children and adults, Age 4 and above only, and their parents. In Digital Traces we use interactive motion detection and projection to explore movement and stillness, drawing and erasing. Using your body as a brush, make shapes, knots, lifts and squiggles appear and disappear on screen. Like a giant canvass without the mess! Beginning with a movement warm-up of games, simple partnering and lifts the workshop will guide adults and children through different movement ideas to play with in the installation -Digital Traces. Digital Traces will be open after workshop so you can continue playing and dancing.

Directed by the Jerwood award-winning choreographer Yael Flexer and installation artist Nic Sandiland, Flexer & Sandiland create live and digital installation work (for theatres, galleries, screens and large outdoor spaces), alongside an extensive programme of commissions and tailor-made training for youth and community groups and professional development settings. Yael and Nic’s work centres on the generating of a sense of intimacy in live performance and digital installation, in a way which acknowledges the physicality and presence of the viewer.

enAball – Workshop with The Process

Draw to Perform 5 – DRAWin, International festival for drawing performance. Workshop for students from Chailey Heritage Foundation, 27 March 2018, Fabrica Gallery, Brighton, UK. Photos by Manja Williams.

Six children from Chailey Heritage School took part in a special workshop at Fabrica in Brighton. They were testing the enAball, an award-winning invention by The Process, a group of University of Brighton students, which allows wheelchair users the opportunity to express their creativity through art.

The portable and adaptable painting device uses the latest in 3D printing technology. Once attached to the artist’s wheelchair, it follows their movements allowing the individual to paint independently, while having a removable paint cavity to allow for easy colour changing, maintenance and cleaning.

The students started by free painting to get them used to the enABall before progressing to ‘join-the-dot’ templates that really tested coordination before finally collaborating on very large shared canvas.

Mark Some Noise – Workshop with Ram Samocha

Draw to Perform 5 – DRAWin, International festival for drawing performance. Workshop for students from Dorothy Stringer High School, 27 March 2018, Fabrica Gallery, Brighton, UK. Photos by Manja Williams.

Directed by Draw to Perform founder artist Ram Samocha, this drawing performance workshop is about back to basic artistic expression while learning to draw with simple yet effective marks. The drawing marks that we will create will produce sounds which we will learn to control and use in our work. The sound component will work as an added layer to the piece. The final exploration is an action filled with high energy and amazing vibe that combining drawing, movement and sound.

MarkMaking/Moving – Workshop with Marega Palser

Draw to Perform 4, International symposium for drawing performance. Day 2, 5 March 2017, Fabrica Gallery, Brighton, UK. Photos by Manja Williams.

Using improvisation and play, the workshop draws quite literally on the idea of taking a line for a walk. It seeks to release us from our usual patterns of physical behavior whilst releasing our inner scribbler.

This is Not about drawing, more about what happens when we put a mark on a blank piece of paper. . . similar to when we put our body into a blank space.

Where does the mark take your body? Where does your body take the mark?
