A Meditation on the Construction of the Real
with Lior Shamriz

Film director and artist Lior Shamriz leads a 4-week intensive workshop expanding the realm of performance for the camera. This workshop—the first in our series—will be using the live process of recording as means to create a framework for extended representation.

The task of constructing representations of the “real” within live performance for the camera confronts us, as directors and performers with questions about our desires and expectations of how the real should look, sound and feel. Performers and film makers are invited to explore methods for creating the “illusion of the real” with film director and artist Lior Shamriz. MIRROR is a workshop for those who want feedback on a long term project in an intimate setting and also for those who desire to make a new project within the class. Collaboration is invited among participants but not expected.

8/27 & 8/28: Introduction & Sources: Theory, History and Experiments
9/3 & 9/4: Door: Performer & Personae, Initiation, Conceptualizing, Language Materials
9/10 & 9/11: Timelessness Against the Scenery: Action, Film, Performativity, Acting
9/17 & 9/18: Editing: Framing & Re-Framing a Mirage

12-3 each day
