Intensive artistic project
In January 2018 around sixty pupils of the Gesamtschule Barmen will be undertaking a four-week intensive artistic project as part of their work-experience placement.
For four weeks the 14- and 15-year-old schoolchildren, from year 9, will have the chance to experiment with various artists, to research, to create pieces and spend time together. In consultation with their mentors, the pupils will develop their themes and look for appropriate means of expression for them, together creating their own choreography with live music. They will take part in all the processes relating to the creation and execution of a dance piece: designing the sets, doing the lights, designing costumes, learning about stage management, organisation, press and publicity, and documenting the work with film, photography and text.
There will be a public presentation of the work created on 2 and 3 February 2018 at Riedel Communications.
