Open (Dance)studio – Cooperation project for children and young people
BOB CAMPUS @ PINA BAUSCH ZENTRUM in cooperation with Dunua e.V.

For children from 4 to 14 years

How do people get into storytelling and who listens to them? Which (life) stories are heard and which voices are drowned out? How do we give space to those who are often rendered speechless? And how can we reinvent storytelling as an age-old custom between people?

The OPEN SPACE summer vacation workshop at the Pina Bausch Centre is starting! Here we will explore how we can deal with our own stories in a self-determined way and express them through painting, photography, dance, video and sound technology. This creates a free space for creativity, individual decisions and togetherness.

The painter, dancer and choreographer Milton Camilo, the media artist Nara Bak and other artists will lead the workshop and enable an encounter with different media and art forms. The workshop is organized by the Pina Bausch Centre, BOB Campus and Dunua e.V.

After the summer vacations, there will be a regular course offering and another workshop in the fall vacations. The young group will work together on a final presentation.

Please register for the workshop by sending your name, age, e-mail and telephone number to The participation is free!

Who is who?
The Pina Bausch Zentrum under construction is preparing the future - a new art and cultural institution for the 21st century. Until the opening, various events and projects are already taking place, networked with the people and actors of the city. The Pina Bausch Centre is coordinating the overall project.
