Wooosh 2016: Free workshops in design and performance for street theatre

Wooosh is “a research platform currently presenting the human body alongside pneumatic structures, exploring specific urban environments across Winchester/Bucharest. Based on Julio Cortazar’s experimental novel Hopscotch (1963), audiences move between multiple sites/performances, creating their own narrative.”

Students, performers and practitioners, as well as those without previous experience can apply to participate in a series of free workshops where you will be able to design, build and perform in inflatable structures culminating in a performance in Winchester city centre.

The workshops will take place in April, and the deadline for applications is 18 March. See attached poster for more details, or visit wooosh2016.co.uk.

They are particularly keen on finding performers that aren’t studying Music, so Design students who are interested should feel encouraged to apply:


We are looking for performers of all styles, mediums and pathways to share in our student-organised night SOLID VIBES at the Stretch on the 14th March.

The night will be exploring the relationship between SOUND and BODY.

Full details and how to apply on Facebook. Any questions, contact Dani: daniela.burba@gmail.com.”

Materials chemist looking for a designer collaborator

Are you a Design student with an interest in science? Are you looking for a scientist to talk to? Materials chemist Greg Gregori wants to explore the role of design in science, and he is willing to collaborate on a critical design project. Greg’s approach to his work is creative and experimental and includes doing scientific experiments as party tricks, an idea rooted in his childhood desire to become a magician.

If that sounds like it would fit your work, you can contact Greg at his email address, Gregory.Gregori[@]matthey.com. This opportunity was sent to us by alumnas Lior Smith and Clara Nissim.
