Our lucky PLRM students are in for a treat this Tuesday 4th!

Performance artist Stacy Makishi is visiting Teesside University to offer an afternoon workshop for the third year students.

Stacy Makishi’s present body of work is interdisciplinary in scope and includes live art, film, installation and visual art. The work is as complex as it is accessible; humorous as it challenging; visual as it is literate.



Guest artist visit: Chris Goodwin

Students from all three years today had the chance to gain knowledge and insight into the choroegraphic practices of a professional, north east based, dance artist. The session began with the students learning some of Chris’s rep material before beginning to manipulate it with a focus on relationships within choreography with self, audeince, space and others.
