Over the years, we have developed an entire series of productions with young people on the Studiobühne. Each of those performances was unique in its outcome, but what they all had in common a tremendous sense of energy and intensity that imbued each project. For this new edition, participants will take inspiration from Crystal Pite’s ballet Angels’ Atlas as they’re led by three choreographers in one of three groups. Each of the groups, made up of youths and young adults, will explore life’s transience, uniqueness, and fragility. We live in a fast-paced world, with everything rushing by at top speed. Are we running to keep up? Or just standing still? We’re meant to be everywhere at once, never missing the next big thing. But is that what really matters? Which means this workshop is about nothing less than the meaning of life and experiencing impermanence. With that in mind, each of the three groups will embark on an artistic expedition, armed with an abundance of questions. That journey will culminate in a joint performance, presented on the Studiobühne.
