Writing and the Body Workshop

About

Inbetween Time Festival of Live Art and Intrigue Inbetween Time Festival of Live Art and Intrigue returns across the streets, sites and art spaces of Bristol from 1 Dec. Over 75 events involving 130 artists from the UK and beyond will make up a breakneck programme of live, digital, sound, sculptural, architectural, dance, theatre and guerrilla works. Opening with five days of events and performances, the exhibition What Next for the Body and live art programme continues until 6 Feb, with Arnolfini as the main festival hub. www.inbetweentime.co.uk In the West, the body has been increasingly banished from writing, as if text is a product of pure mind. How can we challenge this process? What can we learn from other cultures where writing is still an embodied practice. This workshop offers the chance to engage with contemporary textual practices - live and durational writing, writing on and about the body, writing across bodies and (de)composing a body of writing. Led by Jerome Fletcher, Associate Professor and MA Course Leader in Performance Writing at UCF. Inbetween Time Festival is produced by Inbetween Time Productions in collaboration with Arnolfini. Inbetween Time Festival is supported by Arts Council England, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, University of Bristol and Bristol City Council.
