SummerLab #2 : July 29 – August 12 2018

Carte Blanche, performance theatre in Denmark, is searching for people aged 20-26 from across Europe to join SummerLab#2.

The SummerLab will offer inspiration, tools and a frame for artistic inquiry for people who are hungry to ask big questions and serious about diving into meaningful investigations of reality. Participants will be invited into Carte Blanche’s artistic frame and research in collective creativity.

Carte Blanche
Carte Blanche works with immersive performance. These works lead audience into poetic encounters that allow us to explore and stand on the edge of what we know – thereby aiming to expand our common understanding of reality. We want to create space for reflection and recognition, for eye-opening encounters and meaningful contexts for being together.

You do not need to have any specific performance experience. Instead we are searching for people who want to experiment, to challenge themselves, to risk and reflect together on questions such as: Who are we? Why are we here? And what can we become?

The SummerLab is an intensive 2 week training and collective investigation in which we will work daily with a combination of physical training, philosophical dialogue, meditation, artistic experimentation and play. Through this we will observe and consciously train the qualities and principles of collective knowledge and creativity.

These explorations will be grounded in immersive/sensorial performance and installation making. This work uses space, objects, light, sound, smell, text and our experience of being-in-the-world, as artistic tools.

The SummerLab will be lead by Sara Topsøe-Jensen (Artistic Leader at Carte Blanche) and Sarah John (Artist in Residence at Carte Blanche).
