My interest in Street Training
i'm a tate forum street trainer
I am studying Fine Art at the moment and my work is pretty much about the human being, the human body and human emotions. I enjoy exploring human reactions and personal conflicts people are faced with in everyday life. I work mainly with performance ,drawing and painting as well. I also enjoy exploring photography and photographic processes. i'm interested in street training for the way in which you interact with the public, in a sense that you are proactive to achieve your goals. Your idea of working with youth groups who are at "risk of offending" is also not only interesting but important and overlooked as well. Not many people would waste time chatting to young men who are considered criminals. Your work seems to be very much about Art itself,that is, you enjoy working directly with galleries and Art education and that's fascinating!
showing a little bit of clowning, encouraging people to reverse pick-pocket, bounce balls, copy walks, lie down in the middle of the road, walk on railings, swing around lamp posts, sing in public, wave to people on busses, hug beggars, buskers and bums. walking in the middle of the road instead of on the pavement whenever possible. looking up at the sky, especially when walking under leafy/ berried/ flowering trees. playing capoeira on street corners and slapping the bums of passers-by.
street training has changed my life. my every day travelling around the city has become joyful instead of mundane. everyone should join in!
i would like to have a way of sharing our day-to-day activities with each other, and of challenging co-trainers/ interested onlookers to complete certain activities as they go about their day.
i am a theatre maker interested in taking my practice out of the theatre and on to the streets. let's play!
