  • a description of you as an artist and your practice
  • why you would like to do this workshop

This workshop will explore some of the potential applications of wroking with space and sound in stage work. After a short introduction into how Trickster-p's practice has developed in working with spaces, we will then concentrate on the different connotations of both physical and sound space and its practical applications in the field of contemporary stage.

The workshop is an opportunity for participants to explore space not just as decorative scenography but as a central elementin creating a conversation with the audience.

Cristina Galbiati and Ilija Luginbühl will lead the workshops while individual proposals from different participants will be elaborated and developed by the group.

Participants should have an interest in using space in an unconventional way and mixing different media to develop their own proposals.

The workshop is aimed at theatre directors, performing artists, visual artists, stage designers, sound designers as well as to students of these disciplines

Places on this workshop limited. Artists must be available for the whole period of the workshop.

About Trickster-p

Arising out of the encounter of Cristina Galbiati and Ilija Luginbühl Trickster-p is intended as an artistic research project which pushes at the boundaries and is at the crossroad of different art forms.

Over the course of the last several years the emphasis on the relation of the audience to the art work and the ever-evolving definition of being a spectator in today times have become recurrent elements of Trickster's works.

In this light the work on the space plays a central role as it is meant as a link between audience and creator.

Cristina Galbiati and Ilija Luginbühl's poetics strongly favours an essential aesthetic which moves away from the narrative and delves into an imaginative and evocative world.

To date, Trickster's works have been presented extensively in Europe, Asia, Australia, North and South America.
