ICA Creatives

These workshops will be led by Lauren Siliver, a clown and theatremaker from Liverpool. They will on focus on live performance skills, including movement, physical comedy, and clowning. Taking the complex location of the ICA in central London (a place which both bustling with excitement and heavily surveilled) as a starting point, we will use performance to think about bodily autonomy, mental wellbeing, and storytelling. Participants will work together to produce a short performance.
