Welcome to Studio Swan is a speculative proposition that asks what conditions would be appropriate for us to temporarily become with plant or animal? And why would this be something desirable or necessary to undertake? A form of meditation? Or to expand our horizons of comprehending what it could feel like to be more than human?
This is an immersive writing workshop weaving ethnographic practice, some role play, storytelling and speculative thinking to co-create characters living and working at Studio Swan.
By working with these exercises, we will channel something of Karrabing Film Collectives’ methods, “Perhaps the central purpose is to discover what we never knew we knew by hearing what we say in moments of improvisation. We suddenly see what we have been saying—what we have been sensing”.
This event is hosted by Spike Island for the Kaleidoscope Network with Eastside Projects, Primary and The New Bridge Project. Your NewBridge membership allows you to attend events hosted by the network.
