About the workshop

The Necessity Of Performing is a performing arts workshop for improving the tools of the
performer and for digging into the original impulse of art creation, the so called “necessity”.

One focus of this workshop will be on presence-skills development, which will not only be used as a way
of practice, but also as a tool for creation and for composition. BILOURA has researched since its very
beginning in the field of presence techniques, using transdisciplinary and intercultural strategies, in order
to shape or remold exercises, developing a methodology for creation through presence – Poetic
Landscapes. For sharing this way of creating and performing, the two artists propose a set of exercises
for improving the quality of listening, the connection with intuition, the creative flow, the free response to
impulses, the accuracy and the expansion of the attention.

Another focus will be put on the original source of artistic creation, in other words: what motivates us to
“create” Art. What we call the ‘necessity of performing’ is an important drive for the individual artist to
understand the source of its artistic doing. Therefore we will dedicate to creation and composition
techniques, starting from an artistic reflection around the key-word “necessity”.
Requirements: basic level of English language, comfortable clothes, full presence for all the
appointments, being at ease in working creatively with body and voice.
