THROWBACK SUMMERCAMP 2019 | CONSOL THEATER GELSENKIRCHEN
One year, ten theatres in five countries, 10 groups of 15 young people aged between 16 and 23, who work artistically within the annual theme 'Identity and Freedom': Five international Tandems share the same subtopics, developing an artistic vision of a better future. The groups meet once a week at the theatre in their city. The international partners communicate and work together in the digital space. Artistic works are created, which will be presented at the Summer Camp.
Once a year, the groups from the Ruhr area visit their European counterparts for five days in their partner cities. They exchange their experiences and learn how the partner is working artistically and see the home and background of their former digital friends. The first trips are planned in January and March, as KJT Dortmund visits La Transplanisphere Paris and Consol Theater Gelsenkirchen 20 Stories High in Liverpool.
In summer the groups from the European partner theatres will come to the Ruhr area to live in europefictions summer camp, a future lab, where everyone meets up. Thinking outside the box is the fundamental principle. Artists tutor the young people in different forms of art, as diverse as performance, video, dance, music, urban interventions, and digital formats. Even more guestexperts are invited and provide input to exciting new themes. The next Camp will take place from 13.7.-21.7.2019 in Gelsenkirchen.
