ARTISTS RUN WORKSHOP
In public involving performance and video production
Flock mentality between animals and between people seen from an artistic, scientific and literary perspective examined in a Zoological constructed natural environment. The students create their own hybrid animal flock from elephants and butterflies in the Zoological garden. In the elephanthouse the students gain knowledge of masks, text and performance improvisation and performance for video camera in the constructed natural landscapes.
The project throws the students into an ambitious artistic creative process in an authentic high tempo over 2.5 month. The students get an understanding of and responsibility for the creative production in a collaborative performance and video work. In 2015 the collaboration premiered at the Nikolaj Kunsthals Video kunstfestival FOKUS
