Our performance collective Co.Crea.Tive is opening our doors for collaborative exploration. Currently, we are an avant-garde music based collective and we want to welcome other disciplines such as visual art, new media, dance, devised theatre, physical theatre, puppetry, performance art, poetry or anything else in-between.
We aim to connect people and work together to create new pieces of constrained improvisation, to be showcased at our next event. We want to encourage creative pollination between various practices. This can be done with someone you have never worked with or someone you already have a rapport with.
The potential for further work can develop, performance in other settings can happen, and new insights can be activated.
