Beyond Space and Time is a call for co-creating an online experimental hybrid Sci-Fi performance piece together. Through experimentation and exploration of various creative processes and assemblage.
The first session of the workshop will offer a space for exploration, connection and self-discovery. We want to give our minds the delight of experiencing the limitlessness of their creativity through openness and playfulness.
Challenging the notions of Space and Time will be the foundation to help us transcend our own belief systems and unlock our imaginations.
During the second session we will share our discoveries together and perform our personal and collective creations to and with each other.
