Special effect manual
by Lynda Gaudreau
Buda Arts Center, Kortrijk
This workshop is above all a research space around scores and working themes such as, speed, accidents and precision.
Lynda Gaudreau's partitions constitute environments, "maps " integrating scenography, light, sound and relevant activities. The partitions include activities totally unrealistic, impossible to accomplish but that must be resolved at very precise moments. These scores open to a multitude of strategies to execute the tasks and generate what so called "side effects".
What is choreographed is not a form but an "effect" the resulting "side effect" of the score itself.
The workshop will be divided in two parts : conceptual and practical and participants will elaborate scores in a collaborative process.
Open to choreographers, composers, visual artists interested in producing "special effects" in their works.
