Lunchtime Series: Risky Art, Safe Space
Created by TAPA and moderated by Thalia Gonzalez Kane, with panelists Marcia Johnson and Alan Dilworth
How do we make safe spaces? How can we ensure we can take risks in rehearsal rooms, without posing risk to those working in the room? How can we feel both empowered and vulnerable? This panel explores methods of best practice, shares stories of positive rehearsal experience, and offers ideas as to how we can support each other in making great art. We focus on how to achieve nurturing work environments, at all levels.
The Icon Experience
THE ICON EXPERIENCE examines the line between an individual’s desire for celebrity and the desire to do something adventurous in a public space while maintaining anonymity. In THE ICON EXPERIENCE audiences of 10 will sign up for one of the limited times available. Participants must arrive in advance, and will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement before entering a tent for a 10 minute experience of performance art with an A list celebrity whose identity will be concealed by a morph suit. This experience has been months in the making with Lisa Anita Wegner acting as the curator to bring both audiences and celebrities an unusual chance to interact. Clues to the identity of the celebrity will be given and a life-changing secret will be revealed … but can you keep the secret?
