To celebrate the launch of the University’s Green Heart, Dr Pablo Pakula, Teaching Fellow in the Department of Drama and Theatre Arts, has curated a programme of live art for the Green Heart.
During each season of the festival, University students will attend a series of workshops led by established live art practitioners to explore live art methodologies. The workshops will culminate in a new live art intervention, which will respond to the specificity of the Green Heart and the festival theme of ‘illumination’.
For the winter season, students will work with live artist, contemporary dancer and lighting designer, Aleks Wojtulewicz.
His practice is rooted in the physicality of his body and he has been exploring ways of creating performances and installations that offer a full-body experience of art. Aleks is co-founder and co-director of Home For Waif and Strays, a live art initiative in Birmingham which provides a home for artists from near and far. He is also part of performance duo KAKE.
