I guess if the stage exploded….
Sylvia Rimat is a Bristol-based performance maker. She creates Live work for theatres, galleries and public space.
Her projects often revolve around the places and times we inhabit mentally, physically and in our imagination. Consciousness, memory, personal histories and risk are reoccurring focus points. She is interested in the Live moment of performance and likes to play with the presence of an audience.
Her performances have been presented throughout the UK and Europe, such as at SPILL Festival at the Barbican London, Mayfest and Arnolfini Bristol and EPAF at Centre For Contemporary Arts Warsaw, Poland.
Sylvia is a Supported Artist of The Basement in Brighton.
For Caravan, Sylvia will be presenting a pitch of ‘I guess if the stage exploded…’
In ‘I guess if the stage exploded…‘ performance maker Sylvia Rimat follows the aspirational and possibly impossible goal to present a show never to be forgotten by its audience members. By introducing memory tasks and techniques and applying them to the stage situation, the audience is systematically trained to remember – hopefully forever.
“The skill of Rimat’s performance lies in the way she marries the magic of the theatre with the fantasies of the virtual.’” Mary Paterson on ‘Imagine Me To Be There’
“There is such a strange menagerie of ideas brought into play in this show that it would be hard to forget’” Total Theatre on ‘I guess if the stage exploded…‘
“A wonderfully inventive performance, that not only questions the nature of performance spectating but also offers a tantalising 45 minutes of theatrical joy” A Younger Theatre on ‘I guess if the stage exploded…’
