By Sinéad Hargan, Yasmin Mawer and Anya Wigdel-Bowcott

We’ve been thinking about process and how to show the process of working in the final work. We work a lot with intuition, how do you workshop that though? Intuition sounds like it could be an excuse for not having a clear plan.

In this workshop we intend to explore an intuition-led style of performance making. We will work with our bodies and the space around us as materials which will be our departure point to generate palpable imagery and physical interventions.
