|Dragon Dance Theatre|
Dragon Dance is organizing an intense, experimental and improvisational theatre lab, plus a plastic arts workshop, where we will make masks, sets and costumes.
For this first 2012 event, July 20 to August 20, we will be working on the island of Ummanz, northern Germany - our host is Achim at the Ruegen Surfhostel.
We continue to work along the lines of offering a theatre laboratory in which we will conceive, create, and mount a cross-cultural, collective creation, with all the resident artists. As in past projects and with a new group, together we will imagine, and realize our own creative Utopia. We will make a peaceful, historically relevant, community art event on an ecological theme. We will dance and sing, make music, break bread, laugh, and inspire one another, while working in our chosen fields, to make a memorable public performance. We will have fun. We will work. We will create our own world of cultural exchange, cooperation and creation.
This is a fully integrated, in depth, immersion; a working environment, shoulder to shoulder with other artists from around the world, dancers, actors, puppeteers...
|Duration of the residencie:|
|from 3 weeks to one month|
|Residents who stay the whole month will come away from the Pan Am with a clear sense of the operating principles of a working theatre, how to make the props, masks and sets required, how to organize a group for theatrical expression, how to find a theme, and how to develop that theme into a performance.|
