Tower Seminar Series – Exploring Processions

February 13, 2019 at 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

The Tower Theatre (Theatre 2)
4:00PM to 5:30 PM
Exploring Processions
Presenters: Dr Louise Platt and Luman Street Theatre.
Chair: Dr Niamh NicGhabhann
What is a procession? What does it do? Movement, place and identity. Processions have the potential to be powerful symbolic actions and events, during which specific groups claim and occupy public space in a highly visible way. Processions, by their nature, claim an authoritative space for partici-pants. They can also be transformative in relation to place, and can provide a space for creative col-laboration, play and the re-imagining of relationships between people and place. This seminar, with Dr Louise Platt and Lumen Street Theatre, explores the meaning and development of processions from different perspectives. The Lumen Street Theatre practitioners will join us for this seminar to describe their creative practice.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
