TRAVERS 3 - CONFRONT THE FUTURE (in development)

international cross-art- research camp Copenhagen

An extraordinary working meeting of international artists* and researchers* from all over the world in Copenhagen at the end of May 2020. A 10-day interdisciplinary camp to explore the interaction between art and the future: What challenges and work processes lie ahead? How can we as artists position ourselves for the digital future? What can we learn from future generations? And where does our current artistic practice go?


As longtime researchers and concept developers in the performing arts, we have been selected by a jury - consisting of the board of the National Danish School of Performing Arts DDSKS and the ORGANIZERS - as experts in the performing arts for this interdisciplinary research camp. We would like to take this unique opportunity for networking and research.We will develop a philosophical-social perspective for the camp to meet the challenges of the future and to create synergies with new scientific directions, explore sustainable working methods and stimulate artistic interactions. Extensive research in advance in order to enter the camp with appropriate production proposals. We will explore the topic CONFRONT THE FUTURE in correlation to our thoughts on LIQUIDITY, TRANSFORMATION and SYMBIOSIS. Planned are, for example, a lecture demonstration, and a Research Lab with training and playful experimentation, as the Scandinavian colleagues know it from our work at Danish universities and company work. In the preparatory phase we will deal with different narratives such as theatre, film, performance, video installation and education. In autumn we are planning a showcase for the German-Danish Year in Berlin. By establishing sustainable cooperations and contacts to expand our international network, we see good chances to set up further innovative projects in Berlin with the colleagues from TRAVERS. Several museum directors* and curators* will participate in the camp as hosts. Through our many years of project experience with the Museum of Communication Berlin (including happenings for the Long Night of Museums, roundtables, teaching concepts, 9-months of performative support for an exhibition, audition as a performance with 200 actors), we can also offer concepts for Danish and German museums and thus promote an international exchange at the interface between the performing arts and museum spaces.
