More about The Playgroup:
The Playgroup is an experimental performing arts laboratory.
Over the summer season 2012/2013 a rotating roster of artists will produce three thirty-minute performance pieces at their residence of the Theatre Arts Admin Collective in Observatory. An inclusive ethos with an emphasis on communication and play has attracted an exciting cross section of artists practicing across such diverse disciplines as architecture, journalism, script-writing, graphic design, styling, music-making, performance and dance.
The Playgroup is at once a performing arts laboratory, an open-source ideas studio and a skills-transfer programme. The Playgroup network encourages diversity of practice by artists of any and all skill sets. Focus on group-work and imaginative play will be the ingredients for three sets of performance experiments.
