FADO Performance Art Centre’s newest recurring performance series takes on the abstract form of a school, a university, a workshop, a class or a course, in the form of our own homemade academy. Performance: Academy is in session for the second time this October, performed by Dino Dinco.
Performance Academy 2: Performing the Critique with DINO DINCO
Performance Academy 2 is presented in multiple sessions and is offered free of charge to audience-participants. There is limited enrolment for this academy, so we ask that audience-participants commit to attending as many sessions as possible. This workshop is open to all participants of all levels of study and/or experience (including the just plain curious).
DINO DINCO is a performance art curator and maker, film and theatre director, arts educator and writer. Dinco lives and works in Tijuana and Los Angeles and his research includes experimentation with performance presentation and the relationship between documentation and scholarship.
In this Academy, participants (audience) will: take a hard (and subjective) look at the current state of performance praxis and strategies of performance presentation; examine goals, ideals and expectations with making and/or attending performance; address the relationship of performance within a visual art context, including the burgeoning trend of performance being collected by museums and private collectors; consider the Performance Festival Industrial Complex; and explore how and why all of this can (and arguably should) be challenged. Participants will be expected to perform as part of this research and investigation.
