Workshop for performing artists with a final flashmob in public space

Fantastic Village People

From May 04th until 08th, 2020, a performing workshop with a final presentation in public space will take place in theaterkontor Bremen. The participants will be divided into two groups with either a focus on physical theatre and dance or vocal expression and improvisation, each working with one international artist. The groups will be merged at some points in order to present a POETIC INVASION of the historic city centre of Bremen, an artistic happening dedicated to the visionary art of the Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel.
