Are you interested in spending two weeks in an international and artistic environment exploring your creative potential? Then come to Stolpe, where a former cement factory is waiting for your ideas to be turned into a new and exciting art space! In this work and performance camp you will experience two types of creativity together with your host, the Ponderosa Artists’ Association: you will take part in daily workshops on theatre, design and body movement. The workshops will be led by renowned teachers and artists from all over the world who are professionals in the world of stage, movement, performance and improvisation.
Alongside these workshops you will be able to express your creativity through your work inside the cement factory and the wonderful nature surrounding the area. We invite you to bring in your youthful spirit and ideas in order to turn the place into an exciting and comfortable place for visitors. Possible tasks could include improving the canal beach, planting an urban agricultural forest plot, building seating along the grounds, supporting local architects and stage designers with basic construction work and building a bread oven, as well as setting-up and decorating a bar and party room for festivities.
Everything will be taking place in dance studios inside the former cement factory. The cement factory is a new space for art, culture, education and sustainable enterprise that supports innovate and ecological values. This piece is the newest development of the Ponderosa Artists’ Association, which has been established and active in the local area for 20 years.
