Variations of Beckett is an artistic research hub researching the work of Samuel Beckett based in Oslo, Norway. We have been working as a group for over a year, and have explored many different entries to Beckett’s work. We are specifically interested in infusing our own practices into the collective explorations, and have developed a method of using variations.
We invite artists from all fields to be part of our online workshop on the 2nd and 3rd of May from 1pm – 2pm (Oslo/Paris time). Together we will explore Beckett through movement, text, voice and objects. It is going to be hands on practical tasks rather than discussing Beckett for this specific event. The members of the group will each share an exercise lasting about 20-30min each.
The group consists of: Sophie Barth (director, performing artist and founder), David Tann (actor), Mari Pitkänen (actress), Ermioni Garramone (architect and scenographer), and Claudia Lucacel (director, filmmaker, actress).

You will not need to prepare anything in advance, but we recommend that you wear moveable clothes and have something to write on.
Please note that when pressing attending, this means you will attend. This is so that we know approximately how many we will be, and so we might adjust our workshop according to this. You can choose if you want to attend one or two days, but we recommend attending both.
The workshop will be in English.
The workshop is free, but donations are welcome on Vipps: 98129162
All donations will go towards our symposium this summer.
