I have an eclectic pedagogy that capitalises on my experience and knowledge as a performance-maker and event producer; emphasising embodied learning and bringing together theory and practice. Above all, I like to encourage a curious, inquisitive and critical body/mind.
LIVE ART WORKSHOP INTENSIVE
In July 2017, I ran a week-long workshop on live art at the Casa de Cultura, El Campello (Alicante, Spain). It took place within TAE's summer programme. The course was designed as a practical, embodied introduction to live art and performance art practices, for participants without any prior experience. Our exploration included work on: non-matrixed presence, generating a state of flow, liveness and risk, spatial relationships, Fluxus and task-based actions, materiality and image composition.
The slide show below shows images of this workshop.
Here are some nice things Dr. Rosemary Klich (Head of Drama and Theatre Studies) has said about me:
"Pablo is an exceptionally engaging and inspirational teacher who has expertise across a range of theoretical and practical areas. He always pushes students to produce their best work and to think creatively, facilitating a fun and supportive learning environment. A talented performer and theatre-maker himself as well as an academic, Pablo encourages students to create interesting, innovative performance practice that is informed by current trends in European theatre. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching with Pablo on modules such as 'New Directions' and 'Performance and Art'. He's always popular with the students!"
Here are some nice things students have said about me in their anonymous feedback:
"I loved the teaching from Pablo, he was very helpful in his feedback and always made seminars and workshops very engaging and interesting."
"The regular meetings with Pablo were extremely useful and this constant support allowed me to develop my research portfolio over the whole term. I was able to send him written work and would get feedback within a few days, which was a great help towards the last few weeks building up to my final project. Overall, I couldn't have asked for more support."
