An Activity by Open Street aisbl in collaboration with the Municipality of Uccle
Direction by Jordi Vidal
Workshop for performing artists with a final flashmob in public space
A performing workshop with a final presentation in public space will take place in Brussels, directed by the international performer and choreographer Jordi Vidal . As a source of inspiration, we will work with the music "Alle Menschen Werden Brüder" inspired by "Hymn to Joy", written by Friedrich von Schiller and set to music by Ludwig van Beethoven (last period of the 9th symphony), hymn of the European Union from 1972.
The participants will focus on physical theatre and dance improvisation and instant composition. The goal of this workshop is on unfolding one’s own creativity and skill of improvisation.
Participants will have the opportunity to experience a completely different and new communicative dimension compared to the usual one of the stage, being able to rely on the direct involvement of the audience and on unconventional spaces.
This is a unique opportunity to experience the process of a creation in a way that is respectful of the personality of each participant, with both a high standards of quality and everyone’s commitment.
