Performing artist and director Ran Jiao (CZ/CN) is coming to Norway to join the Oslo Fri Teaterfestival at Gamle Munch. She and her Lovable Humans Collective will come and lead a research workshop named <Re-imagining Non-humans>. The workshop is a variant of her three-year research and performance project <Spider Turtle, We> with Belgian-based costume designer Anne-Catherine Kunz, during which she researches the possibility of becoming non-humans through building costume bodies. She is looking for performers, costume designers and artists who are interested in the agency of costumes and non-humans to join. The project is from 1 - 5 November 2023, with a work in progress presentation on the last day, 5. November. The workshop is free of charge and will take place during the daytime at Old Munch Museum.
