Boredom is everywhere and should be avoided. What if one is willing to embrace it? Is that possible? How long can one stand it? How do I react to it? What happens afterwards? What does boredom need and what damages it? How do space, perception and stances change within it? (How) can boredom be represented? Entertaining? What is it? Walter Benjamin says: Boredom is the dream bird that hatches the egg of experience. Following his thoughts on the topic, as well as Siegfried Kracauer‘s reflections on it, I invite you to an adventure trip to explore the universe of boredom. This workshop aims the artistic and physical examination of boredom. A series of methods of the Situationist International, the Psychodrama, scenic reflections and scenic longtime experiments.
