Join! - Waste Ghosts Workshop
WasteGhosts. Street-performance work-in-progress
The Theater Anthropology Cooperative invites you to the workshop Waste Ghosts.
The project's concept: "Bury us properly or else we are coming to haunt you!"
WasteGhosts represents an interdisciplinary venture of Experimental Recycling and Human Ecology. The workshop aims to construct a street-performance in the form of a parade inspired by death rituals, funeral ceremonies, All Soul’s Day and requiem customs from different cultures.
Based on the WasteGhosts metaphor of the souls and matters improperly integrated in the universe cycle, we create giant puppets, masks, flags, costumes, flower crowns, musical instruments.We improvise interactive theatrical and musical scenes.
Participants are asked to bring with them: one adhesive tape, cutter/scissors, one nail, one candle, as much waste as it gets (paper, plastic, cans, tons of plastic bags and PETs, etc.)
WasteGhosts is fueled by the Theater Anthropology Cooperative from Bucharest (Cooperativa de Antropologie Teatrala) and will be part of the International Film Festival Mediawave, Fort Monostor (Komarom, Hungary), between 26-30 April. Meeting point and you can find the complete program of the workshop: Information Office, April 26th, 11.00 AM
Our motto: “Together! It’s natural, it’s cultural, it’s possible”
You can find the entry form and regulations and the method of film uploading in the left menu column.
We summarised the results of the MEDIAWAVE Summer Film Camp during the Ördögkatlan Festival (click here).
On the 4th of May, 2013, avoiding the protocol-centered award ceremony clichés of big film festivals, the organisers attempted to find a more human-centered and personal form of giving the awards and closing the 23rd Gathering in the Fort Monostor.
