Virtual Intimacy (虛擬親密) Community Workshop

  • MakeSpace Level 2, 52 Hindley Street Adelaide (map)

ActNow Theatre (Australia) and Very Theatre (Taiwan) are working on a new collaboration exploring queer virtual intimacy. Virtual Intimacy is an interactive performance using theatre and live film to explore the ways queer communities develop and interact online and through mobile phone apps, being developed in collaboration with queer community in Australia and Taiwan. It will premier in 2020 in partnership with Arts Centre Melbourne's Asia TOPA and the National Theatre of Taiwan. Virtual Intimacy builds on previous work by Chou Tung Yen (Looking For? documentary) and Edwin Kemp Attrill (Zero Feet Away, interactive performance).

即行劇場(澳洲)和狠劇場(台灣)目前正攜手進行合作,探索同志虛擬親密關係。 《虛擬親密》(Virtual Intimacy)這件互動表演作品,是以周東彥作品《你找什麼?》和 Edwin Kemp Attrill 的《咫尺之遙》為基礎進行發展,透過結合劇場和即時影像,探索同志族群在手機交友軟體上交往與互動的方式,並於創作過程中邀請澳洲和台灣的酷兒社群一同參與。應墨爾本藝術中心—亞太表演藝術三年展和台灣的國家劇院之邀請,本作品將於 2020 年首演。

We are looking for queer community members to take part in a workshop to share stories. We especially want to hear from people who are queer and any of the following;
Are from Taiwan, China or are Mandarin speakers
Have had long distance relationships, or relationships predominantly mediated through technology
Use dating apps regularly
Are in a relationship with someone from an Asian cultural background
Are from any cultural background interested in participating in a cross cultural theatre/film project

The workshop will be delivered in English with Mandarin translation. Participants will take part in a series of games, discussions, storytelling activities. There will be video documentation during the workshops. No experience necessary.
