Oblivia shares its collective practice method in a workshop with the theme Structures of Love.

In this workshop, we introduce our Do What You Saw devising method. We begin with warming up of the body and the voice, then proceed to work using the method, a way of creating and sharing material collectively. Through distillation and sharing of materials, the participants create a rich array of artistic substance that is put to use at the end of the day. The workshop encourages the participants to try distillation, filtering and sharing of ideas to transform them into collective action, sound and text. The participants explore new ways of working with subtlety, humour, presence and timing.

The Do What You Saw method was originally created as a tool for collective sharing of material between Oblivia’s founding members Timo Fredriksson, Anna Krzystek (1968–2017) and Annika Tudeer for the development of Oblivia’s own performances. Oblivia’s work as a collective has now continued for almost two decades.

Performing arts group Oblivia was founded in Helsinki in 2000 and is famous for its ambitious ideas yet minimalistic performances. Oblivia’s audience has learned to expect experiences that are always new yet recognizably Oblivian. Oblivia has evolved through various stages from a workgroup into an internationally recognised, constantly active collective that collaborates with theatres, groups and artists at home and abroad to explore the present through new methods in performing arts.
