Annie will be exploring the concept of ‘duende’ in her workshop, and engaging in activities that can help in accessing it. Duende is about engaging with the struggle we have as humans — to be “singular and communal”, to be “temporary and transcendental”. It is about chipping away at the surface of things and accessing a sense of ‘soul’ in art. It is a concept associated with the Spanish, and was pioneered by the renowned poet Lorca. The workshop will also examine the use of imagery and meta landscapes in writing. Annie will end the workshop by exploring how to translate the duende and the atmosphere created through imagery and meta landscapes into exciting immersive performances.
