Louise White An Exploration Of Performance As A Stimulus for Utopian Collectiveness. 2012 THE330 THEATRE RESEARCH WRITINGS (SINGLE) BA (Hons) Theatre University College Falmouth With thanks to Jerome Fletcher. Introduction: A Feeling of Utopia I wish to begin this paper by outlining how I will be applying the term ‘Utopia’. The idea of utopia is usually associated with Plato, Thomas More, or even Karl Marx, who have all suggested different systems in which society can be organized in order to create a ‘better’ world.

Louise White An Exploration Of Performance As A Stimulus for Utopian Collectiveness. 2012 THE330 THEATRE RESEARCH WRITINGS (SINGLE) BA (Hons) Theatre University College Falmouth With thanks to Jerome Fletcher. Introduction: A Feeling of Utopia I wish to begin this paper by outlining how I will be applying the term ‘Utopia’. The idea of utopia is usually associated with Plato, Thomas More, or even Karl Marx, who have all suggested different systems in which society can be organized in order to create a ‘better’ world. While Plato’s idea of a fairer society came about first, it was More who coined the term ‘Utopia’ in the 16th century. Literally meaning ‘no-place’, More’s utopia, as Marx’s and Plato’s, were descriptions of how an ideal society could be managed and coordinated; examples that could be worked towards and used as schematics for our own societies to follow. ‘Entertainment does not, however, present models of utopian worlds […] Rather the utopianism is contained in the feeling it embodies. It presents, head-on as it were, what utopia would feel like rather than how it would be organized.’ (Dyer, 1977 p.373) When applying utopia to performance, it takes on a less literal, more sensory existence.

About me

I am a vibrant and energetic contemporary theatre practitioner and performance artist, specialising in collaboratively devised methods of creating exciting and innovative performances! I am a 2012 Theatre BA graduate at Dartington College of Arts (Falmouth University). I always enjoy working with new people, in fact I thrive off it! The excitement and electricity from working collaboratively with other artists, bouncing ideas off each other, and creating something truly magical is where I find most of my pleasure in working in this industry. My work is inspired by people, places, myth and social and cultural values, what is relevant in todays society and what different ways I can engage an audience in the theatre, studio, or on the street. My projects span a variety of mediums and performance spaces including street theatre, site-specific performance, film, soundscapes, as well as the more obvious studio and stage based theatre work. Despite specialising in contemporary devised theatre, I do enjoy going back to more traditional forms of theatre when I get the chance. I especially excel at character acting, and am a competent and imaginative director.

My secondary specialism is my long-term involvement in circus arts. I am foremost a stilt artist and fire performer, however when it comes to circus skills I tend to be a jack of all trades and can try my hand at almost anything. Having already established myself in Cornwall as one of but a few self-employed and insured female stilt and fire artists, I've have been involved in fantastic events and festivals around the South-West.

If you wish to know more about my experience, my CV is uploaded as part of my portfolio.
