What's Missing: eating, talking, sharing challenge

What’s missing – eating, talking, sharing challenge: regaining autonomy in performance training

This workshop was developed out of a desire for community, challenge and peer to peer support specifically amongst mid career solo and independent performance artists. Its aims were to facilitate training for a small group of artists who might come together and create spaces within which to explore different questions around working with the body in performance. The process began with a private blog for four artists - a virtual space in which to share thoughts, questions, images and experiences. After six months of blogging, three of the artists came together in London and each led a day's workshop concluding in a dinner.

Rajni worked with artists Sheila Ghelani, Sally Marie and Kira O'Reilly for this project.
