Radical Landscapes offers a chance to explore sound, movement, mark- and language-making exercises in the landscape with a view to developing work, or simply to extend your existing practice.

This workshop introduces a variety of movement, sound, and mark-making techniques as part of a poetic investigation into our relationship with landscape. How do we express ourselves in the natural world? How does the natural world express itself in us? 

The aim is to expand our awareness of what our body is and does in relation to that which we consider natural, to develop new ideas and forms of expression. Our tool is the body. Our material is the landscape. The emphasis of this work is multi-sensory and multi-media. We will work with language, installation and performance to create two- and three-dimensional works.

Some exercises will involve the use of smart phones or portable audio recording devices (if you have either it would be useful to bring them with you, though neither is essential). All other materials will be provided. After introducing you to a range of techniques you will be invited to combine two or three methods to develop solo and collaborative works for sharing and discussion. The aim of the day is to support you to find your own way to innovate and expand your work in relation to landscape.

An openness to trying new things is crucial to both workshops but no previous experience is necessary, although you may find it useful.
