IMG_1186_online Performance as Practice is a practical workshop, focused on interdisciplinary performance. PaP is open to dance, movement, performance art, improvisation and other performing artists of all levels, professional and university, who are interested in further developing a solo and collaborative body-based art practice.

Particpants will explore different aspects, elements, 4-PaP Kopiedisciplines, modes and methods of performance; and will create, develop, and execute site-specific works.
