CheersCamp at Tanzhaus NRW

Cheers for Fears: Workshop-Camp in cooperation with Tanzhaus NRW
24 & 25 October 2020 in Düsseldorf

Deutsche Fassung

How do you dance Lindy Hop? How to speak as a choir on stage? How do I get a sound recording without any disturbances? Which strategies do I use to make myself invisible or especially visible in public? What are do’s and don’ts for more diversity? What distinguishes a stringent application? And how do I get rid of the back pain that writing has brought me?

Based on the conviction that everybody in the performing arts – regardless of age or artistic or academic background – has a knowledge, skills and talents waiting to be shared, the Cheers for Fears network has developed the workshop camp, where all participants are both teachers and learners at the same time: During the one-and-a-half-hour workshops, each participant has the opportunity to convey a particular aspect of his*her own artistic work and to pass on his*her own knowledge, and to get to know the specialist knowledge and superhero skills of the other participants directly afterwards in the following workshops.

Participating in the workshop camp is free and catering will be provided. Those who come from far away can also get a place to sleep – first come, first served!

You can just participate or additionally give an one-and-a-half-hour workshop. There’ll be a small payment for workshop leaders. The day is concipated in a way that you can participate in the other workshops before and after your own workshop. Your workshop should deal with a topic close to your heart – and be limited to a concrete aspect of your skills.
In the Corona edition of our WorkshopCamp, you should also consider keeping distance between the participants.
We will discuss the technical equipment and feasibility of your workshop ideas with you case-by-case.

Workshop topics can come e.g. from the following areas:

  • body and movement, voice and choir
  • artistic strategies
  • concepts, funding, production management
  • art theory
  • video, photography, light, sound etc.
  • layout, design, text and image processing programs
  • philosophy
  • communication methods
  • art in times of COVID-19

Deadline for registration for participation and/or workshop ideas is 05 October 2020.
Write to to register as participant only or also as workshop initiator (with a short text describing your workshop idea)and let us also know if you need accommodation.
