INTENSE

WITNESSING

The Intense Witnessing Project explores the phenomenon of beholding visible expressions in our immediate world. 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Intense Witnessing project explores the audience-performer relationship, highlighting the role of responsibility in performance. By targeting implication biases and subcultural expectations, Intense Witnessing focuses on the phenomenon of beholding visible expressions in our immediate world. How do performers make visible the relationships they seek to establish with their audiences? How does the act of witnessing extend beyond performance settings? How can we witness ourselves? 

APPROACH

Intense Witnessing involves a mixed-methods approach, including ethnographic data from performers, as well as qualitative data from spectators and collaborators involved in creative process.
