Intensive Performance Art Workshop with Rachel Echenberg
DATES: July 30th – August 3rd from 10 to 6 pm
PLACE: Artscape Gibraltar Point, Toronto Island, Toronto

This 5-day intensive workshop is geared to artists who are interested in an exploration of performance art and the creative process, regardless of participants' usual discipline. The workshop will confront the performative gesture from several angles: within the unfolding moment, as a context specific relationship, and as a sensorial image. Hands-on exercises, thematic discussions, and individual coaching will support the creation of these live works within the setting of Toronto Island. Each day of the workshop will explore different themes that will build upon each other towards a public presentation of participant's work at the workshop's conclusion.
Montreal multi-disciplinary artist Rachel Echenberg has been making performance-based work for twenty years. Her work has been performed, screened and exhibited since 1992 across Canada as well as internationally in Chile, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Morocco, Northern Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland and the United States. http://rachelechenberg.net
