VJ Women wanted ! – Edition II / Part 4 

After the success of the first edition which has already welcomed 40 women in 2017, we are back for the second edition !

This full VJ workshop, taught by A-li-ce, is an invitation to enter the live video field, giving you the theoretical and the technical tools to develop your own live visual project. Each session is divided into 3 parts : VJ theory, technical workflow and your visual project's development. 

In the first part, we will explore VJ backgrounds and influences from visual arts to cinema and music, focusing then on some topics such as the loop pattern, the dramaturgy of the performance and the performing body on stage. The second part of the workshop is dedicated to a full learning session of Resolume Arena VJ software and the technical workflow. The third part is dedicated to improvisation and live trainings in order to develop your live set. Each participant will be then invited to create a 8-10 minutes VJ set and to play it live at VJ Open Lab in Spektrum.

The workshop is divided into 4 sessions, taking place between January - April 2018. We encourage you to join the 4 sessions in order to have the complete workflow to develop your project, but you can also join one session dedicated to a specific topic, depending your interest and your level.

WHY A WORKSHOP DEDICATED TO WOMEN ?
The live video community is quite active in Berlin but we still miss women on stage! We know you are here, producing visual content and learning on your own. We propose you a creative and technical workshop with 4 sessions to improve your skills and to develop your live video set in a collaborative professional workspace. 

WHO CAN JOIN THE WORKSHOP ?
Any woman interested in visual arts and live video performing. No previous knowledge is needed but fresh new VJS are also invited to join to develop their projects and improving their skills.
