PPL FOCUS WRKSP at Anarchist Book Fair April 9th and 10th.

We’ll be at the Anarchist Book Fair next weekend!

April 9, 11am-12:30pm
…FOCUS WORKSHOP for kids and their parents:

Institute_Institut FOCUS WORKSHOP #5: the self and its image
The Panoply Performance Laboratory

What is an individual? What is an “institution”? Using live-feed video that allows kids (and parents) to see themselves move onscreen in real time, we will explore the place where our selves are often asked to “feed” into structures such as school, work, and family. Kids/parents may play an interactive game that examines the mechanics of institutional engagement and invites subjective critical analysis of any current institutional relationships that the participants may have. Smaller kids may choose to play with their own image and their endlessly repeating, smaller and smaller images continuing off into the distance.

and for adults and teens, April 10, 4:15-5:45pm

FOCUS WORKSHOP on “Institutions.”
Part radical think tank, part focus group, part physical workshop, the Panoply Performance Laboratory invites participants to discuss their relationships with institutions, and focus on the role(s) that institutions play, both as groups of individuals and as emergent entities, through group exercises. Each participant will also have the opportunity to make an individual public statement on video for inclusion in PPL’s 2011 documentary opera, Institute_Institut (and will get a free ticket to PPL’s final performances.)

Between Dec. 2010 and June 2011, PPL is conducting a series of Focus Workshops, investigating cultural structures, interpersonal politics, daily conceptions of reality, and institutional ecologies through group discussion, performance work, and co-creation.

A Focus Workshop is part focus group and part thinktank. “Workshop” is used to note the performance-based perspective held by the workshop facilitators (the artists creating the project) and the performance research direction that some workshops take, depending on the interests of the participants.

Part I: Group Discussion. What are institutions? How do they function in your life? What are some of your experiences with them?

Part 2: Enactions, observations, and games.

All participants will receive a free ticket to the performances of Institute_Institut, in Fall 2011. The project is a staged documentary opera about authority, reality, institutionality, and sensibility. Issues and ideas discussed and researched through these Focus Workshops, as well as selected experiences, statements, and documentation from them (and many other forms of research) will largely form the libretto.

Desde el mes de diciembre 2010 a junio 2011, PPL ha estado realizando una serie de talleres informativos en Brooklyn, Manhattan y Queens. Los talleres investigan las estructuras culturales, las políticas mediativas, las construcciones diarias de la realidad, y las ecologías institucionales.

Se hace un llamado a personas de todas las edades y nacionalidades que quieran participar y contribuir con sus opiniones, experiencias e ideas en los talleres creativo-informativos. Los resultados serán incluidos como parte de colaboración en el proyecto Institute_Institut.

El Grupo de Enfoque funcionara también como fuente de inspiración y creación. En este sentido, “Taller” se refiere al aspecto performativo realizado por los artistas que facilitan la creación del proyecto y dirigen la investigación del mismo en base a los intereses de cada participante.

PRIMERA PARTE: Discusión en grupo.
– ¿Qué son las instituciones?
– ¿Cómo funcionan?
– ¿Cómo han sido tus experiencias con ellas?

SEGUNDA PARTE: Interpretaciones, observaciones y juegos.

Participantes recibirán una entrada gratis para la presentación de
Institute_Institut, en Otoño 2011. El proyecto se presentara como un documental montado al estilo de una ópera que tratará temas de autoridad, realidad, institucionalidad y sensibilidad. Las ideas y conceptos que fueron discutidos e investigados durante los talleres de enfoque de grupo, así como las experiencias, declaraciones y documentación de los participantes, serán incluidos como parte del libreto.
