• Armi von Vep presents "Gaze God(d)ess - ways of seeing.
When: 13:00 - 15:30 o'clock
Details: Armi Von Vep's unique performances have been described as fearless, full of emotion, and always very present. One reason for her signature style is the ability to be comfortable with a gaze: Looking and being looked at. When she started performing burlesque after years working as an art model she was thrilled to be able to return the gaze to the audience instead of being passively-actively present as a nude model. Von Vep has been studying gaze and ways of seeing and it's variations and effects throughout her 8 years of performing. My aim in this workshop is to offer ways to see ourselves through a more explorative, curious & tender lens. The practices can be intense and uncomfortable. All feelings are valid and participants can opt out of all practices if not comfortable. A "safe point" in the workshop space will be designated during the introduction. Seeing ourselves and being seen by others can be a vulnerable thing: We often gaze at ourselves unsympathetically and critically be it via the mirror or via our screens. However as performers with gaze comes power and responsibility like with all performing: We hold the power of our actions, presence and presentation when we are on stage. Where we look, how we look, where we want the audience to look and who we might look back at is ours to decide and play with. In this workshop, I offer exercises where I invite you to subject yourself to your own gaze and the gaze of others. I share practices that I've used for years in my own training and practices that have been a powerful experience shared to me by others. As a group, we'll practice looking at each other, experiment in different gazes and the different ways we might feel when we look and when we're being looked at. In the final part of the workshop we turn our gaze inward. There will be an introduction, warm up and cool down, discussion through-out, guided solo practices as well as a group exercise and a gentle debrief in the end. So talking and doing, but nothing very physical unless you want it to be. 
Bring: Clothes that are comfortable to move in and stay warm in, their camera with a phone on it (or a phone with a camera in it) & cam-phone a stand if they have it and a water bottle.

When: 11:30 - 12:30 o'clock
