At Home in London and Gaza

Artist(s): Julian Maynard-Smith, Vivianna Chiotini, Taghrid Choucair-Vizoso
Running Time: 5 Jan – 17 Jan 2016

About this event

During these two weeks, a group of around 10 artists in Gaza are working with 10 artists in London on a series of workshops exploring the possibilities of using video and software to collaboratively create live performance across digital and physical divides. Through exchanging high-quality video files over the internet and a real-time Skype connection, the two workshop locations are combined into a single space and inhabited virtually by the artists.

Selected through an open call for participants, the artists involved in the project come from a variety of disciplines – theatre, film, visual arts, photography, architecture – and this is the first time that they work together.

The project uses technical and artistic strategies that have been researched by the UK theatre company Station House Opera over the past five years. It is an attempt at a genuine exchange of artistic and cultural ambitions in the creation of a collaborative, site-specific theatre piece. This is an early stage in the development of a full-length theatre production between Gaza and London for presentation in 2017 or 2018.

A public sharing taking simultaneously place in Gaza and London on Sunday 17th January at 4pm, will present the results of the workshops including a live performance.
