“An art project that is not located outside, but directly in society and deals with Value and knows no norm, no routine, nothing is given, everything is negotiated and recreated. Goes to and across borders, every participant goes to and across borders"
A development trajectory for young hybrid artists On December 17, the launch of a special international challenge in this pandemic took place. About 30 young people (16-19 years) living in Amsterdam, Paris and Berlin with a passion for theater and all related disciplines came together online to get acquainted on Friday evening. Quite exciting because how do we deal with the language barriers and the limitations of zoom?! Contrary to expectations, the two hours flew by. Working together in small groups on a choreography, for example, caused a lot of hilarity. A number of new movements have already been “discovered”. It was a great start to an interdisciplinary theater process. Think dance, circus, physical theatre, language, animation, spoken word, beats and improvisation.
Over the next 8 months, we will take on the challenge together to create something beautiful (co-creation) in a mix of online and physical encounters, resulting in a performance in August 2022 in Amsterdam. What will the shape be? Let's see! What is certain is that we will all come out richer, not only artistically but also in terms of language and vocabulary!
The project was initiated by Maria del Mar de Vries, Marrit de Jong and Solene Jimenez, three students of the Master's in Art Education. The assignment: to design and execute an art education project as project manager.
Together with Compagnie La Transplanisphère from Paris, Zukunft from Berlin and the Paulus Praetorius Gymnasium from Bernau, we partner with the ladies and the creative young people to develop a beautiful hybrid art project.
