Artsadmin is looking for 10 to 13 IdeasTap members to be part of a group that will work with artist Mark Storor to learn and develop new skills in making art and working together.
The Skin of My Teeth is a course that introduces live art and performance to 16-to-25-year-olds and gives them a space to share and develop creative ways to explore themes of identity, personal history and collective knowledge in a safe and exciting environment.
In Mark’s words, “The Skin of My Teeth is about constantly wondering whether you just managed it this time, but never looking back to find out if you did. The only way is forwards. It’s a bit like Peter Rabbit sliding under Mr McGregor’s gate or putting the plug in just before you disappear down the hole.”
It's free to take part and the project runs from 30 July to 24 August (10am to 5pm, Monday to Friday). You don’t need performance experience but need to be prepared to share within the group. We are looking for exciting artists who are interested in working collaboratively. We also ask that participants are able to commit to the whole course, and are able to attend one taster workshop (either 17 or 18 July).
About Mark Storor
Mark Storor is an award-winning artist who works in the space between live art and theatre. His work is devised, often site-specific and always collaborative. Recent work includes the TMA Award-winning For the Best (“a devastating theatrical journey that throws dazzling light on the idea as illness as metaphor” – The Guardian) and The Fat Girl Gets a Haircut at the Roundhouse in London (“The wintry luminescence of Fat Girl is gorgeous stuff and a welcome return to the Roundhouse experimental roots.” – Time Out London).
Artsadmin makes art happen. Our vision is to be an arts lab for the 21st Century for the creation of performance, site-specific and interdisciplinary work, where the innovative, experimental and unusual are nurtured. As artists continue to question the world, to push boundaries and challenge preconceptions, our role is to help them to do it.
This brief closes on Monday 9 July at 5pm and is open to IdeasTap members aged 16 to 25 based in the UK. If you have any technical queries, please visit the help centre. Late entries will not be accepted under any circumstances, including technical issues – so make sure you don’t leave your application to the last minute.
