in combination with watching the performance
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.
For adults and young people from approx. 14 years of age with or without dance experience, e.g. in (school) theater groups, dance and ballet schools as well as theater schools
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.
watching the performance
The follow-up discussion immediately after the performance is the place for all questions, realizations and a joint reflection.
For adults and young people from approx. 14 years of age, e.g. in art courses at secondary schools, adult education centers and (art) associations
In an open rehearsal, the participants experience how the collective works. They see how the artists rehearse on different scenes of text and movement. The participants can react to this and share their own impressions. The artists then highlight different aspects of their artistic research in collaboration with the costume and set designers.
watching the performance
The follow-up discussion will take place immediately after the performance. It is the space for questions, realizations and reflection.
