Module 1 - "Designing costumes and objects for interactive performances"
We invite to participate: beginning artists, designers, architects, photographers, students and everyone who is interested in making art. Take part in our intensive practical course - which will teach you the basics of cardboard-modelling and making performances with people. The course is ideal as a practice internship for students.
Module 2 - "Street performance, organization and communication with public for beginners"
Suitable for actors, performers, directors, clowns as well as event managers/producers who would like both get a new interesting experience of creating performance from the very beginning and improvisation and take part in the organization of the process. Organizers who would like to develop skills interacting with the public in the process of street and spectacle performance are welcome to apply. Your training in performance and management is considered but not critical in our selection.
This is an opportunity to take part in creating real projects where you will deliver unexpected tasks with delightful consequences. The way you are involved in participation depends on your desires, talents and diligence. For the experienced specialists the internship can become a base for experiments, public realization of art plans, research for new directions. For the students and beginners the internship can become an opportunity to make first steps and a place where you will be evaluated by your results, not your diploma and portfolio.
