goal of the educational activities


The participants immerse themselves in the world of "Why change? Are you not ok with how things are?", in which there is constant change and never standstill. They learn that contemporary dance pieces, like this one, do not necessarily follow a traditional storytelling. The artists juxtapose different (movement) qualities, images and motifs in such a way that associations and emotions are awakened in the viewer. Moreover, the participants experience what the creative process of the collective looks like.

workshop

The approximately two-hour workshop begins with a guided warm-up. The collective then shares several tasks from the creative process of "Why change?" and let the participants try them out. This includes structured improvisations but also learning some actual movement material from the piece. There is time for questions and the sharing of theoretical content from the artistic research.
