The aim of our studio is to teach students to create actions and activities based on the recognition of structural and social spatial conditions. It revolves around concepts of space, place, and time. In our teaching process, we take into account the importance of permanent forms and the role they play in modelling human behaviour. Humans, however, are the basic matter of every action. The body and the figure assume the function of the subject and the object. Another aim is to familiarize students with the mechanisms of creating a visual language that is characteristic for performance art. We construct a sign around the performer taking into account such notions as body, figure, silhouette, trace, memory. One of the basic concepts that we analyze in out studio is time. We perform in public space, which allows performers to become initiators of social facts.
