PORT PERFORMANCE Workshop in Berlin 18.-28. Juli

port performance berlinPort Performance in Berlin !? … A mistake?

No! Port Performance is invited by the Association for Artistical Researches Berlin to the project “Irrtumsforschung” (research of mistake), for to realize a Port Performance Workshop with contentual link.

The third Port Performance workshop will take place in the Kunstfabrik am Flutgraben and the location at the river Spree at the former cargo harbour “replace” the portcity at the sea, where Port Performance is normally active.

The mistake or the failure or the misunderstanding will be the research field during the workshop. Learning and individual developement based on mistakes and failures is not to understand in a negative way, but more as an understanding of searching and finding. It is not about, that one fails, but more how. In an creative process, that has the aim to put a mental idea in to practise, there are all the time points where we fail. This potential we will discover and use for to develope and realise art performances.

The workshop will be given by the international Performance-artists and –teachers Angelika Fojtuch and BBB Johannes Deimling. The aim of the workshop is to work out an Art-Performance and its final public presentation. We will realize specifical excercises that will help to transform own ideas into a performative work. The center of the workshop focuses the perception of the own personality and the communication with the body. Own perception and selfexperiences characterize the feeling in dealing with body, time and space in performance art as well as in ordinary communication. To understand his body as a tool and to use this tool in his own communications is the main value of this workshop. Besides this artistical offer we give some cultural specials.
