The core of this Winter School is a thematic series of workshops designed by performance maker Simone Aughterlony. Aughterlony is a daring and engaging creator whose work merges social commitment and theory through physical engagement with objects and spaces. Participants will practice with Aughterlony in workshop sessions and then guided to apply insights gained from these to their own practices. The theme of deep sustainability running through the performance workshops will be informed and invigorated in four special encounters with specialists from philosophy, computer science, bioengineering and climate activism each of whom will present and discuss their approaches from their specialised points of view, exploring how the arts can bring these disparate insights together. The discussions will moderated with a view towards helping synthesize the specialist insights through the daily performance exercises.
