What are the redeeming qualities of failure in performance and beyond? When used as a subversive strategy, can failure offer something constructive, or liberating? Failure in Performance  is an introduction into the discourse of working with failure as a strategy in artistic practices. During the course, students will reflect on the different types of power structures and systems that one can either fail or succeed at. The students will also be introduced to different methods of ‘failing’ and explore the potentialities or new spaces that it can open up for. How can the act of failing expand our understanding of our artistic, political or everyday reality?
