Building Stories with TAAT Collective in VISUAL, Carlow

An intensive two--‐day workshop for professional performance/arts practitioners exploring the interplay of architecture, theatre and body as part of the Building Stories programme.

The aim of the project is to develop greater physical, sensual and intellectual awareness of architecture as a built structure, and an appreciation of its resonant power

Architecture’s capacity to inspire and to contain layered meanings, narratives and histories.

Building Stories is funded through the Arts Council of Ireland’s Engaging with Architecture Award.

It will be facilitated by Architect Breg Horemans and Theatre-maker Gert-Jan Stam of  TAAT Collective, a cutting-edge Dutch-Belgian practice who explore the interplay of architecture and theatre through the nascent discipline of architectural dramaturgy.
