In this workshop, we will work from scratch to build up short performances. The workshop will be composed of tasks for generating material. Various tools will be explored including movement, text, voice as well as ideas and concepts all focused on personal choices of the participants. The process will create material to be shown and discussed and individual feedback will be encouraged among the group in order to understand different processes and to support each other work.
