go plastic STUDIO LAB

Since 2021, the go plastic company has been designing and organizing its own studio format at TENZA, which aims to promote artistic exchange, research and further education; the go plastic STUDIO LAB.

This format involves inviting various local and (inter)regional artists from a wide range of art genres to deliver workshops or other types of impulses and thus create laboratory situations in which the participants can try things out, get to know each other, provide input and conduct research together.

Invited local artists (so far): ÄTNA (music), Mandy Unger (dance), Gwen Kyrg (music), Luise Knofe (dance), PM Hoffmann (illustrator), Thyra Veyder-Malberg (author)
Supra-regional artists: Christine Joy Alpuerto Ritter (dance), Kat Valastur (choreographie), Hanna Adelsberger (dance, urban styles), Pez Rocio (dance, urban styles), Lisa Schettel (director, dramaturge), Tanja Rühl (lightdesign), Lauren Moffat (3D artist), HARTMANNMUELLER (performance collective), Yeliz Pazar (dance, urban styles) (NRW)

International artists: Tamara Arruti (dance, choreographer, Brüssel) Alex Efuse (dance, urban styles, Athen), Melissa Schriek (photographer, Amsterdam)

The curation of the invited artists lies with the artistic directors of the go plastic company, Cindy Hammer and Susan Schubert, who always base their selection on the content that the company is working on at the time. This makes it possible to open up the company’s own production processes. In some editions, the company itself offers workshop or laboratory settings. An invitation to test material with the go plastic company members and to enter into content-related and aesthetic dialogs. The STUDIO LAB editions are also accompanied by company training, which takes place in cooperation with TanzNetzDresden.
