Thursday 24th March, 11am – 12pm

Join Fierce Festival Caravan Artist, Eitan Buchalter as he shares his method of developing site-specific intervention through this hour long workshop. This workshop is suitable for anyone and does not need specialized training or experience.

Fierce likes Eitan Buchalter because

with minimal means (often simply himself in a static position) he generates playful confusion. His simple disruptions, reveal all the assumptions we forget we make as we do the most basic of things, be they walking up an escalator or approaching a zebra crossing.

Venue: The Dirty End (VIVID) as a meeting point

Price: Free 



Friday 25 March, 11.30am

The Silent Walk is an aimless wondering through local space and environment.

It’s not about the singular or authorship; rather it’s an emergent congregating, conjugating, perambulation of randomly shifting navigation made together as a non verbal flock.

It’s origins are from an exercise set by the former Chicago based performance group, Goat Island, it has since gone through slight changes as I’ve introduced it to groups at the beginnings of workshops or as an event in itself.

Venue: Starting point at VIVID (The Dirty End)

Price: Free
