PUBLIC WORKSHOP FOR PUBLIC
The public chooses the artist, chooses and decides what they want to see, the time they want to be in front of a creation. But who chooses the public? Can the artist choose it? In case of being able to do it, what kind of public does the artist need for each of his works? Can we “all” be public for "all" artistic works? Can you learn to be an alternative, emerging, experimental, autonomous and independent public? Is there a professional and amateur audience?
A theoretical-practical proposal about the role and importance of the public as a modifier and transformer of the artistic result. A scenic piece, which is built and takes shape in its own moment and in-situ. It is not something previously formed, but it depends on the spectators- participants themselves, who take one or the other direction. A scenic piece that takes the methodology and tools of a workshop and a talk-conference. A public workshop, for the public, in which to put into practice, deepen and transform the different postures, behaviors and acts- habits that we have as spectators.
