Multi-disciplinary artist and Guildhall tutor Paula Varjack curates and hosts the second series of conversations in collaboration with students from the School’s BA Performance and Creative Enterprise (PACE).
In this informal conversation, streamed via Instagram Live, Paula Varjack is joined by Brian Lobel who discusses his practice and shares advice, experience and ideas with the next generation.
Brian Lobel is a performer, teacher and curator who is interested in creating work about bodies and how they are watched, policed, poked, prodded and loved by others. His work has been shown internationally in a range of contexts from Harvard Medical School, to Sydney Opera House, to the National Theatre (London) and Lagos Theatre Festival, blending provocative humour with insightful reflection. Last year, his book Theatre & Cancer was published by Red Globe Press. Brian has received commissions and grants from the Wellcome Trust, Complicite Jerwood and Arts Council England, among others. Brian is a Professor of Theatre & Performance at Rose Bruford College, and the co-founder of The Sick of the Fringe.
