To Know How To Stand (Warwick / IATL)


a collaboration between FellSwoop and the IATL Student Ensemble, Warwick University –February / March 2014Fellswoop, an associate international company of the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, and graduates of Warwick University, start their new project with the IATL Student Ensemble in Spring Term 2014.This project aims to work with a group of students, recruited from a variety of departments and faculties, interested in collaborative work and interdisciplinary art forms.We will be looking for individuals wishing to use their academic perspectives to participate in our project and create a unique hub of exchange, discussion and creative activities around the subject of utopia.Together, we will explore and respond to the socio-political theories and philosophies of counter-cultural movements and dissidence; question long accepted social constructs, habits and deeply embedded expectations about the way we conduct our lives and the positive and negative implications of an alternative.

The exploration will take place over a six-week period during the Spring Term in the Humanities Studio, culminating in a performance event. Whilst we are looking for students who would have an interest in performing, there are also roles for academic and other creative involvement around this event.

We will be holding a preliminary meeting at 2-6pm on Friday 17th January, where we will begin by discussing the project and its themes, and this will then be followed by a practical workshop. If you are a student at Warwick University and wish to attend, please email us at:, with the subject heading: Warwick IATL.

We look forward to hearing from you,
