Join us for this free workshop where we come together to develop this piece as a collective.
Guided by Katja Keya Richter and Raphaël Holt from Koa collective, this series of performances is an amazing opportunity to develop your practice of performance in public space and bring your unique spark in the group of 8 international artists.
Over the two weeks of the festival, we will meet, rehearse and perform 6 times on 6 different days. Katja and Raphaël will guide the collective process of creation, developing the piece by sharing their rich experience in dance, theater and performance.

We will perform together THE CREATURE as a living sculpture, dancing in the wind. A living organism interacting with the audience, changing the space, bringing questions and opportunities to meet in new ways.
Working with choreography, voice work, puppetry and improvisation dance, we will create together a performance where each performer is bringing their singularity to the collective.

This is a unique opportunity to co-create a piece in this gorgeous place in the middle of the sculptures and give life to the Creature.
