How do we create/compose movement in public space, inspired by it?
This lab aims to explore how we can intervene in public space, how we can invite people passing by, and how we can transform public space into a playground. We will work in public spaces of Tilburg, and through individual and group synthesis tools, we will observe, understand, be inspired, interact and finally compose structures to change its dynamic.
This workshop is part of a larger research on movement in public spaces, conducted within the framework of the Postgraduate Program “Performing Public Space” at Fontys University, Tilburg, Netherlands. The goal is after research has travelled and observed various European cities, to arrive at a final performance/presentation to be held in Tilburg, Netherlands. Therefore, participants will be asked if they can continue to work and participate in the final performance.
Where: Tilburg, the Netherlands
Deadline for applications: 20th of February
The workshop will contain 4 levels:
- Individual synthesis, based on movement research,
- Group composition tasks,

We will work a lot outside, exposed to the weather conditions, therefore it is important for participants to have a strong motivation to work in public spaces.
