Capture the World in Clay
WORKSHOPIn early 1980 the Swiss artists Fischli & Weiss started thinking about categories for possible sculptures: history, culture, sports, entertainment, science, personal memories, and many more. They ended up with a long list of possibilities, some became sculptures, some didn't. Their clay figures became the inspiration and starting point for our performance ‘The World We Live In’. In this workshop we discuss and question the world we live in, the categories of Fischli & Weiss, and then we translate this into clay figures. LET’S CLAY!
Documents, Documentation, and the Post-Truth Era
WORKSHOPA workshop which re-investigates the status and function of "documentation" responding to the urgent post-truth era in documentary theatre formats. What is the function of the theatrical space in the times we live in now? How do we approach and understand "production of truth"? This workshop uses storytelling, autobiographical material and documents to re-investigate the fine lines between fact and fiction, truth and lie, personal and political.
I’d Had Enough So I Killed Him
A dance/physical theatre solo, inspired by the life of poet and writer Maya Angelou, a woman who fought her whole life for black women, as an activist and feminist. A search for being, seeing and wanting to be seen. A search for identity, security and strength. A search for confession, for conviction, for judgement. Washing all the dirt off to get to the core, to make it visible.
