Shared Space- Music, Weather, Politics - Spacelab

SpaceLab is the education component of the EU’s (Culture Strand) SharedSpace Project consisting of 11 EU partners (and beyond) involving workshops, student performances, installations, and international collaborations taking place 2013 – 2016 in several European countries.

Jessica Bowles (The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama’s M.A. Course Leader in Creative Producing) heads the SpaceLab component, working closely with Henny Dorr of the HKU Theatre Faculty Utrecht and PetrProkop of the DAMU, Prague with Serge von Arx of the Norwegian Theatre Academy, James McKernan of York University (CA), Shane Kelly of De Paul University (USA) and Guy Gutman of The School of Visual Theatre, Jerusalem.

For 2015 this group of academics will be working with a team of student curators to plan and produce a programme of workshops and performances. The main goal of the project is to initiate the international experiential interaction and personal exchange between theatre and visual academies, and to create the educational platform as a part of the Prague Quadrennial which will be held 18–28 June 2015.

SpaceLab in Prague will provide world class workshops for more than 1 500 participants focusing on interdisciplinary experimentation across the fields of visual and performing arts, bringing new ideas, discourses, methods and technologies. All of the workshops will take place in the heart of Prague at the Theatre Academy of Performing Arts (DAMU) and will relate to the main concept of the PQ 2015 - exploring theatre as shared space and scenography as complex performative environment and its relationship to music, weather and politics.
