P.O.R.C.H. Summer School 2018 — applications open!
P.O.R.C.H. 2018 is on the way, rumbling in the distance like a summer storm! Ready to soak us with dreams, actions, strategies, and creations. Ready to wrap us in mystifyingly life-changing rainbows of performative spontaneity and artistic transformation. Ready to foster enriching atmospheres, artistic intimacy, collaborative metamorphosis, multi-disciplinary collisions, up-all-night lunacy and zen-like calm, in the rural summer heat. Watch the skies, read on, jump in!
3. June–1. July, 2018:
P.O.R.C.H. Improvisation and Training Module
The P.O.R.C.H. Improvisation and Training Module is a physically demanding, exhilarating undertaking. We dance, improvise, and partner for six hours a day, from Monday to Friday, with special workshops, discussions, jams, saunas, performances, gardening and countryside walks in the evenings and on the weekends. We also undertake a work project that affects or influences the land and collective in the village of Stolzenhagen, where Ponderosa and P.O.R.C.H. are based.
8.—31. August, 2018:
P.O.R.C.H. Performance and Choreographic Synthesis Module
The P.O.R.C.H. Performance and Choreographic Module commits participants to dreaming, devising, creating and performing inclusive and spontaneous actions, performances, and events throughout the public sphere of Ponderosa, and requires a certain creative maturity from participants about their artistic and choreographic interests. Each week will be facilitated by several different artists and facilitators. Energetically speaking, the atmosphere it creates is intense!
P.O.R.C.H. Summer Package
The P.O.R.C.H. Summer Package offers participation in both P.O.R.C.H. modules, together with a self-directed residency time in July, offering space for reflection, renewal, and artistic engagement. In addition to residency time, participants can undertake workshops from the July Ponderosa workshop program at a special rate.
