P.O.R.C.H. Summer School, 2018
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.–28. July, 2018:
P.O.R.C.H. Dreams and Choices Module
The P.O.R.C.H. Dreams and Choices Module is your chance to pick your path through the myriad options of midsummer at Ponderosa. Choose and combine any three classes from the plethora of July workshops, as best suits your own interests, and then interweave them over the course of three weeks. In addition, combine this with unique personal mentoring from visiting guest artists and teachers, as you work and explore. Hear the wisdom and see the guidance, but select your own route.
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!
