Masterclass in Digital performance 

on Zoom, 28 November, 4.00-5.30pm (17,00-18,30 Rome time) 

£12.50 (approx. 15 Euro)

This online masterclass, led by Bianca Mastrominico and John Dean, will provide you with tools to explore digital performance making. Using Zoom as a platform and site for performance, you will experiment with individual and ensemble techniques: working through screens in a responsive way we will look at how to create space and connection with a digital audience through the camera and the use of the platform’s functionality.  

We will be working from our own home spaces – come prepared to play! 

Organic Theatre lead the MA Digital Performance programme at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh.

Organic Theatre is an intercultural performance laboratory created by Bianca Mastrominico and John Dean in 2002. We make, play, disrupt and make again. We sleep on it, we dream of what comes next, we are dissatisfied, and we continue being curious. We are collectors of creative intuitions coming from our lives and our times. Our work is rooted in ongoing training and research for innovative interdisciplinary practice and pedagogy, and our focus is on process-led collaborative creation and audience participation, both live and digital.  

We are a culturally diverse company, and our differences are our strengths. As individual creatives we are committed to promoting equality and diversity through our work and our engagement with audiences. We have a pool of longstanding collaborators, and we seek creative partners on a project-by-project basis. We welcome requests for placements from people with a creative background interested in learning about what we do and how we do it. 

We have performed throughout the UK and Europe, in theatres, art galleries, museums, streets, barns, village halls and festivals including the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Brighton Fringe Festival, Brighton Science Festival, Festival d’Automne à Paris (France), E45 – Napoli TeatroFestival Italia (Naples, Italy) amongst others. Our professional collaborations and training projects have included Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal National Theatre Studio, Shakespeare’s Globe, Gate Theatre (London, UK), Shakespeare Institute (Stratford, UK), Nottingham Playhouse (UK), Theatr Clwyd (Mold, UK), Teatro Sancarluccio di Pina Cipriani e Franco Nico (Naples, Italy), Odin Teatret (Holstebro, Denmark), Gardzienice Theatre Association (Gardzienice, Poland), Milòn Mèla (Bengal, India), Asian Arts Agency, Theatre Bristol and Tobacco Factory (Bristol, UK). 

Workshops and research activities by the company have been presented at various UK universities, conferences and research centres including University of Exeter, Central School of Speech and Drama, Royal Holloway University, University of Bristol, University of Kent, Manchester Metropolitan University, TaPRA (Theatre and Performance Research Association), Theatre Training Initiative (London), Third Theatre Network, Bodies: On: Live, Magdalena: On: Line 2021 (online festival by the Magdalena Project). From 2005-2007 we were Company-in-Residence at University of Plymouth, and we currently teach at Queen Margaret University (Edinburgh). Organic Theatre has received financial support from Arts Council England, Exeter City Council, and Bristol City Council, ESPRC – Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali e Turismo, and Napoli Teatro Festival Italia (Italy).
