    Open Call for Participation in the Workshop with Rosana Cade: The Making of Pinocchio

    A playfully theatrical workshop for trans, intersex, non-binary and genderqueer PARTICIPANTS exploring notions of realness through the desires of a wooden puppet to be “a real boy”.

    Mo-10.02. / 19:00-22:00, Fr-14.02. + Sa-15.02. / 11:00 – 17:00

    Glasgow based artists Cade & MacAskill are currently excavating Disney's Pinocchio as an imperfect trans narrative. They invite genderqueer professional, semi-professional and amateur performers to respond to this old weird cartoon with them, conjuring up new queer versions, that might contain multiple autobiographies and complex representations of trans and non-binary experiences. Responding performatively workshop participants will experiment with different approaches to the idea of realness both theatrically and in their own gendered expressions, questioning the politics of the ‘real’ identity and what it means to them in terms of queer activism. And mainly they will be doing their best wooden puppet drag, enacting their fantasies, and recreating Pinocchio to speak to the contemporary climate.

    It is important that you are able to generate performance material and feel comfortable performing in front of others in the workshop scenario.

    Workshop will be held in English.
