Tavern Talk: When we watch outdoor arts, what are we?

Thursday 20 June 2019

5.30pm for a 6pm start

St James Tavern, Romsey Road, Winchester SO22 5BE


Audiences for outdoor performances have grown enormously in the last twenty years. In relation to the Hat Fair, the longest running street arts festival in the UK, John argues that outdoor arts, released from the conventions of the theatre, have not only proliferated innovative forms of performance and performing, but have also offered us new roles as audience members.

John is a senior fellow at the University of Winchester and has toured the world as a performer, dramaturg and director for the British Council and as an independent artist. He co-directs outdoor arts festivals in the UK.


Tavern talks are a series of informal talks on intriguing topics from the University of Winchester's Faculty of Arts. They are open to all and feature short talks followed by opportunities for discussion. There is no charge for entry although numbers are lmited by the size of the venue. Just grab a drink and join us!
