Rebellion for Sale is a laboratory for interdisciplinary artistic interplay/cooperation that focuses on practical experimentation and collaborative reflection with participants from the fields of composition, instrumental/vocal/body performance and improvisation. It is an invitation to develop compositional ideas in an artistic dialogue by contributing and expanding the own skills as well as trying out different ways of working together. Joint critical reflection and the creation of interdisciplinary works are at the heart of the lab and culminate in a showing.
We will deal with the topic of “neglected rebellions”, i.e. rebellious acts left undone and commemorating rebellions that are absent in the world we are living in as well as on a very personal level. We deal with unfulfilled wishes and dreams, unaccomplished missions and hopes, virulent traumas, obsessions etc. which are turned into music theatrical presences – nostalgic, rebellious, aggressive, sad, sublime …
We generate artistic, compositional, performative materials and activities that stand in the wide context of contemporary music theatre (without limitations to forms, genres, performance or reception modes, medias, technologies etc.) and try-out your ideas in a reflective environment with all participants.
Course fee for active participants is 250 €. The fee includes participation in the course, open lessons and workshops, and free entrance to all of the festival concerts.
We also offer a chance to take part in Rebellion for Sale and Contemporary Chamber Music courses as a passive student.
