Teach Each Other Mondays
One of B&W’s main projects are the Teach Each Other Mondays, our non-hierarchical knowledge sharing format that we are developing together with you. We look forward to seeing you for the second season at Forsøgsstationen on Monday mornings starting in October.
We invite different artists from all fields of performing arts and performance, especially the lesser known ones, to share personal insights into their practice on each Monday morning for one hour, followed by talks, coffe and croissants for another hout.
Together with you, we want to challenge hierarchies in teaching, and adress the contributions of everyone participating with equal care and attention.
We are as happy as you about the end of limitations we are currently experiencing. However, if new rules should be imposed, we will once again support all measures to curb the pandemic.
Please check for the current regulations when we publish new events.
Share your practice
Within the format we currently use, each Teach Each Other Monday features one guest artist. And we would like you to be one of them. If you can imagine to share your practice with a crowd of performers, professionals and enthusiasts for an hour on a Monday morning, this is how to do it. Talk to us about exercises, research practices, rehearsal methods, games, songs, dances and anything you’d like to try out. Please keep in mind that whatever you propose should be accessible for anyone and not require any particular education or ability.
Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out what we can do together.
Summer 2021: Island hopping up B&W’s Family Trees
B&W on Agersø
Our second island project this year took place on our favorite island of Agersø.
B&W received funding from Slots- og kulturstyrelsens sommeraktivitetspulje to host a workshop on identity and belonging. Based on our Stammbaum project, our entire family hosted islanders and vacationers to tell family stories, draw family trees and build kinetic sculptures, mobiles from natural materials. We have found the idea of the “Uro”, as it is called in Danihs, to be an exciting approach to working with our ever moving, carefully balanced, mixed, changing, patchwork or rainbow families.
The project was made possible by a grant from:
B&W on Bornholm
In June 2021 B&W were awarded one of four family residencies at BIRCA Bækkelund International Residency Center for Artists on the island of Bornholm in June 2021. The residency was designed especially for artists who include their children in their working process – just what we aim to do within the framework of our thematic complex „Das Familiensystem ist das Kunstsystem. Das Kunstsystem ist das Familiensystem“. We decided to use our stay on beautiful Bornholm to initiate our collective work on family stories, identity and belonging, the „Stammbaum“ project, together with our two daughters, Ronja (13) and Sille (almost 2).
