3 - 16 December 2012
ENCOUNTER(S) is a three-year Theatre Works project that will commission and present one-on-one and small-scale intimate performances at various locations throughout St Kilda. In 2012 some of Australia’s most adventurous performance makers will undertake creative development residencies as they explore more profoundly the relationship between audience and artist through the development of new work in surprising and unusual locations.
During two weeks in December commissioned artists will be given the opportunity to share their creative
developments and Theatre Works will program a series of workshops and discussions focusing on small-scale, intimate and site-sympathetic performance.
In future years, ENCOUNTER(S) will develop to become a full scale festival of intimate performance presenting a program of events which celebrate immersive, experiential and participatory artistic experiences.
