Purpose of the residency

The performing workshop, which I conducted for a related event of "On the Agenda of Arts" was supposed to be an acting workshop - open to everybody. I had about 15 participants from all over the world - Sweden, Libanon, Iran, Canada,Vietnam, USA and Japan - and from different professional backgrounds.

Plan during the residency

On the Agenda of the Arts "NEW COMMONS"

I have had chosen "The Forgetting" as a common ground for my workshop which was hold under the TWS heading "New Commons". The forgetting is a a subject with we have in common everywhere in the world. Every participant knows about it by his or her own experiences, using their very individual forms of expression.
