Presence and Performance – week 11

In the last session of term 2 we delved into the quality of presence and how that supports performance. We spent time a long time blindfolded, and then time sitting face to face with a partner just simply being and watching. Tasks that are perhaps challenging to sit with, but which require us to let everything else drop away and be as present and honest as possible. We finished by watching a few clips from the documentary about Marina Abramovic’s restrospective at MOMA – The Artist is Present.
