Event description
Awkwoods: Daniel Oliver’s Dyspraxia Adventures in Participatory Performance (London: Live Art Development Agency, 2019)

About this Event

Daniel Oliver is dyspraxic and he creates awkward participatory performance worlds. He has done so since 2003. This book, published by the Live Art Development Agency, documents some of those worlds, as well as bringing together critical and creative responses by Aby Watson, Jo Hauge, Luke Ferris, O. Husch, Chloe Spicer, Hamja Ahsan and Nwando Ebizie. These writings focus on discussing, embracing, and celebrating dyspraxic approaches to performance making, socialising, world building, thinking and writing. It is especially for everyone accept of course for those who choose to identify as ‘everyone’ rather that someone else - but it will be great for anyone who, for example, is invested in dyspraxia, neurodiversity, Live Art, Audience Participation, World-Building, and sentences like this one.

The event will include:

- discounted copies of the book

- a chance to discuss its core topics (neurodiversity, awkwardness, audience participation) using Daniel's clunkily conceived Rong Table format

- due to the date, fully non-commital/over-committed Halloween dress code will be optional
