Cardboardia Performance LAb

Join Cardboardia's Street Performance Lab in Derry/Londonderry

May 16 (Saturday) – 24 (Sunday) 2015, 11am to 7pm
As part of the Peoples' Republic of Creativity during Voluntary Arts Week

Personages of Cardboardia are happy to welcome anyone who wishes to create big, perform loud and parade the streets of Derry!

If you want to learn how to create characters and worlds with cardboard or get better at what you already know; if you are looking for a powerful experience, or be a part of a large creative project and make new friends - apply below and join us at the Lab!

The Lab has two major Modules:

Module 1 - Designing costumes and objects for interactive performances

Module 2 - Street performance and communication with the public for beginners

Throughout the several days of our intensive Lab we will create a large-scale interactive space and prepare a city parade of cardboard awesomeness.

In Module 1, designers will learn basic and advanced techniques of creating costumes, decorations and objects from cardboard. The program could be particularly interesting for artists and architects, school teachers and designers.

Those who take part in Module 2 will go through the entire cycle of preparing a city event - adapting the concept to the location, preparation and management. The module is curated by a brilliant street theater director, so we especially welcome stilt walkers and other performing artists to take part. You will learn the basics of interaction with the audiences, exchange stilt walking and performing experience and get to improvise in a new eclectic team.

The Lab will end in a series of performances on 23 and 24 of May.

Curators of the Street Performance Lab are:  Mathijs Stegink, NL (artists, animator, trainer and teacher), Olesya Kandalintseva, Rus (artist, designer, workshop curator at Made in Cardboardia), Wolfgang Hauck (street theater director, stilts walker, homeopath).

Participation in the Lab is free, yet the number of participants is limited. Groups will be formed following the results of online interviews.

Lab participants will need to take care of their daily expenses and costs of travel and stay in Derry/Londonderry (Northern Ireland).

In order to take part in the Lab you need to fill out the application form, complete a test piece and receive the confirmation from the curator.
