The Oblivia collective sheds light on its artistic practice in workshop under the theme Structures of Love.

In this workshop, we introduce our do what you saw devising method. We begin with warm-ups of the body and the voice, then proceed to work using the do what you saw method, a way of producing and sharing material collectively. By distilling and sharing materials that are created together, the participants produce a rich array of artistic matter that is put to use at the end of the day. The workshop encourages the participants to try distilling, filtering and
sharing of ideas to transform them collectively into action, sound and text. The participants encounter new ways of working through subtlety, humour, presence and timing.

The do what you saw method was originally born as a tool for collective production of artistic material for Oblivia's performances between its founding members Timo Fredriksson, Anna Krzystek (1968–2017) and Annika Tudeer. Oblivia’s work as a collective has now continued for almost two decades.
