2 days of practical reflection and re-creation with Cox Ahlers
11am – 5pm, 26-27 May, 2018
This is a lab for generating new aspects of creation. The questions, how to express ourselves, how to use our technical skill to deal with a theme and how to take a stand in the actually political circumstances constantly come along in our quotidian art-work.
In the lab thematic creation we fan out the participants’ creation structures and look at them practically in improvisations and experimentation from different viewpoints. We will explore solo and group exercises to find new ways of dealing with creation and to enrich the thinking about it.
Thematic Creation addresses to artists who want to create and wants to be their own author, also to directors, choreographers and dramatic advisers who want to expend their abilities in a two-way discourse. Creatives from all artforms and disciplines are welcome.
