The first “SharedSpace” workshop that will take place from 25th until 27th September 2013 in Warsaw and will explore and rethink the political potential of contemporary theatre, performance, performing arts, installation and architecture.
The main goal of the project is to create a platform for investigation of contemporary scenography; to explore scenography as an interdisciplinary field and an active agent in the creation of spatial/performative/social relationships. The aim is to experiment with creating new spaces for performative events in order to rethink its political potential through physical placing, positioning and spacing inspired (determined) by scenography/environment. SharedSpace further explores imagined spaces and their theatrical, fantastic and political potential. Above all SharedSpace will propose a mental space for sharing between professional, students and wide public – interdisciplinary scenography platform built through research, presentations and creations.
Young scenographers, performers, architects or theorists under the age of 35 interested in examining contemporary scenography and looking for new forms of space for performative creation.
Travel costs and accommodation will be covered by the organizers for selected participants.
