Urban Adventure – Performance workshop in the public space for kids ages 8-12
Performance art has always been used as a radical alternative way of artistic expression.
Performance allows us to challenge our casual everyday expected body movement and behavior in public spaces and look at ourselves and at our environment from a new perspective.
During the workshop we will go on an adventurous wandering walk together in the inner and outdoor spaces of Suzanne Dellal Centre. Inspired by the local materials the city will provide us, we will explore and learn as we go, ask questions, discover treasures, make up games and imagine the city as a big playground designed just for us. Even the most ordinary places have the potential to become the most creative and exciting sites.
The workshop will combine performance art methods along with photography, architecture, sound, dance, writing and visual art, inspired by artists such as Willie Dorner, Valie Export and more.
