“Performance Anxiety” workshop series – a performance art experiment at Warren Wilson College, NC lead by Transart MFA candidate Claire Elizabeth Barratt


“PERFORMANCE ANXIETY” performance art workshop series

Lead by Claire Elizabeth Barratt
performance artist & MFA candidate with the Transart Institute

Two locations – real & virtual
Real space – Warren Wilson College, NC – Bryson Gym
Virtual space – tumblr site (to be disclosed on acceptance)

March 27 thru May 1, 2015
Real time – Friday mornings 10am – 12 noon
Virtual time – anytime before the next Friday
(informal sharing of work – Sunday May 3 TBA)


As an MFA candidate, my project is to create a practical pedagogy for performance art. That is – a teaching method that will enable students to:
1.    Learn about the history of performance art
2.    Prepare the body & mind for creating & performing
3.    Create & share your own original performance art pieces

This is an experiment to use both real and virtual space for the purpose of performance art pedagogy! Students will get the optimum benefit of the learning experience by attending ALL the workshop sessions AND continuing to develop and share ideas online. However, it may be possible to gain some knowledge and creative tools for performance art just by virtual participation alone. This is all part of the experiment; so no one is excluded … let’s see how it works!
