Book tickets by emailing Marina (
A 3-hour workshop to explore interdisciplinary performance making, led by CDS Artist Member Marina Tsartsara and based on each participant’s personal experience of genetic disease/chronic illness. The space aims to open a dialogue between art and science, personal body narratives and the biomedical body, the patient’s body and the artist’s body. Performing Invisible Difference workshop will explore methods of giving a ‘voice’ to the unspoken, to physical sensations, to invisibility and to the richness of experiences of the ephemeral of the human condition.
In our bio-performative processes we will use movement/dance, voice, text, videodance and fine art materials. At the end of the workshop we will share short works in progress with the group, that can have the form of performance, live art, dance, or videodance.

Workshop open to all participants that would like to explore any kind of chronic/persistent health issue.

Please note: Unfortunately CDS remains inaccessible to wheelchair uses or those with limited mobility as we do not have a lift and are on the third floor of our building.
