This Curious Workshop, led by artistic directors Leslie Hill and Helen Paris explores the transformative power and shapeshifting quality of objects and the potency that they can have in live performance. Participants will play with the elision of ‘the exquisite’ and ‘the mundane’.

Curious is directed by Helen Paris and Leslie Hill. Since 1996, Curious has produced over fifty works embracing performance, publication and film. The work has been presented and supported by events and institutions including: the Royal Shakespeare Company; Sydney Opera House; Guling Street Avant-Garde Theater, Taipei; and the Center for the Contemporary Arts, Shanghai; and the British Council Showcase at the Edinburgh Festival. Performing Proximity:Curious Intimacies is published by Palgrave Macmillan, 2014. Curious is produced by Artsadmin, London.

The MFA degree in Theatre–Performance Making is jointly offered by California Institute of Integral Studies (SF) and the University of Chichester (UK). Our core faculty is comprised of internationally recognized performance makers and scholars working across a wide variety of contemporary forms. We support emerging and professional artist/scholars who want to develop their work and artistic identity in the San Francisco Bay Area and internationally. We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2017.
