Performance Video Labs is project designed to share my research with professional performing arts practitioners. It builds on years of work investigating the epistemology of video and embodiment, including the Journal of Embodied Research, the Judaica Project (2016-2018), and the AVBODY Symposium (2018).

A call for participation was put out in late 2018, inviting expressions of interest from theatre and dance companies, as well as other groups that practice together regularly. Although the official deadline has passed, feel free to get in touch if you are interested in exploring or expanding how you articulate your work through video.

The project has published two documents so far:

• The two-page Video Labs Primer (February 2019) makes a wide range of experimental videographic techniques and ideas available to artists to explore.

• The one-page document How to Make a Video Catalogue (June 2019) walks you, step by step, through the process of creating a video catalogue from your practice.

The first public event created by the Performance Video Labs project will take place in December 2019 at the Temporary Contemporary gallery space in Huddersfield, UK. Further events will follow in 2020, while updates and multimedia from participating companies will be gradually added to this page.

If you are working on performance video labs, you can set up a meeting with me.
