Get ready locos y locas: In 2013 — for the first time ever — La Pocha Nostra relocates its annual summer school from Oaxaca, Mexico to Athens, Greece!! Spaces are limited and expected to fill quickly so please submit your application early.
This summer intensive will be led by troupe members Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Erica Mott, Saul Garcia Lopez & Dani d’Emilia. The focus will be on new performance art strategies and the human body as a site for creation, reinvention, memory and activism. We will also place particular emphasis in the relationship between the human body and architecture by intervening different indoor and outdoor spaces. At the end of the workshop we will have an epic jam session open to the local arts community. This amazing cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary and cross-generational laboratory will only host 22 participants.
The infamous ‘Pocha workshop’ is internationally recognized as “an amazing artistic and anthropological experiment in which carefully selected artists from several countries and every imaginable artistic, ethnic sub-cultural background and gender persuasion, begin to negotiate common ground. Performance becomes the connective tissue and lingua franca for our temporary community of rebel artists.”
As always, space will be limited and is expected to fill quickly. We encourage all interested applicants to submit materials to us as soon as possible.
