This workshop is for postgraduate students in Cultural Geography, Quaternary Science, Drama, Theatre and Dance.
Embracing disparate disciplinary perspectives and methods it sets out to explore how scientist, geographers and artists might work together. Part of an ongoing research project by Dr. David Overend (Drama, Theatre & Dance) and Prof. Danielle Schreve (Geography), Performing Wild Geographies imagines repopulating the British countryside with past inhabitants; animals that have not lived here for several thousand years.
The workshop, focussed on collaborative performance-making strategies is a cross-disciplinary experiment in engaging the public with the 'rewilding' movement.
Meet at the Arboretum beside Car Park 16 at the Katharine Worth Building (over the footbridge by the Piggery Gate Entrance, north of the A30) and prepare to spend some of the day outside.
