OBJECT THEATRE IN DESIGN – WORKSHOP

Preben Friis, Merja Ryöppy, Jacob Buur

Abstract


In this workshop we will demonstrate a set of techniques from the post-dramatic genre of Object Theatre and discuss how they can enrich design practice and design research. The work brings together a design tradition of engaging objects in co-design and a theatre competence of improvising action with objects. With the participants we will inquire into:
Object puppetry (exploring objects from ‘within’), Improvising movements (action before thought), Staging objects (context dependence), and Multi-stakeholder drama (object perspectives).
