Akademie #2 - Lost in Space?
Theatrical Community, Protest and International Collaboration in a Disembodied Age
10.–12.06., Conference programme online via Zoom, Workshops in various locations
The pandemic has hit theatres hard all over the world. Places that were built for bodies to gather and share meaningful experiences together have spent most of the last year empty. The Impulse Academy takes a closer look at this situation. What is lost when performances and working processes take place in the digital space? And what is gained?
The three days of the ACADEMY will take place in a hybrid format, both online and in person in Düsseldorf and Cologne, Berne, Johannesburg and Minsk.
The lectures and discussions in the mornings will focus on the role of the body in creating communities, political protest and international collaboration.
In a workshop held over multiple afternoons, participants will explore the art of touching, smell, intimacy and vulnerability. Register by sending an email to akademie[at]impulsefestival.de.
