Collective creation with Colectivo Lisarco

Artist: Colectivo Lisarco

What does it mean to genuinely work as a collective? What aesthetics emerges when every member of the collective, each with his/her own special talents and characteristics, has every bit as much input as another? Colectivo Lisarco is an inspiring example of a company for which the collective creative process is absolutely fundamental. Their way of working yields awesome poetic images and a completely unique and original form of performance art. Lisarco’s main objective is to create a more open and inclusive cultural climate. The improvised performances they produce are fascinating to watch and, at the same time, challenge our opinion of what an artistic product is, where it begins or ends, and who is allowed to be part of it.


Today in 2017, Lisarco is a more or less stable ensemble composed of people with different backgrounds, abilities and disciplines, which include dance, music and visual arts. In their creative process they explore how movement, music and visual arts can react to each other and merge. On Saturday April 1st their performance / work in progress called Synecticos will be presented at the main stage of Zuidplein Theatre.


During this workshop you will learn more about Lisarco's vision and context and you get to experience first-hand how this collective works. You learn what it means to create images, movement and sound while being part of a collective. You are encouraged to provide your own contribution to this process. Feel what it means to be part of a fully equal and genuinely collective of musicians, visual artists and professional and non-professional dancers.
