Multivizija is a training that combines different art expressions: photography, video, audio, dance and theatre. 50 participants who have experienced being different – because of a different culture, an experience of migration or sensory or physical disability – will be engaged in this creative process of workshops.

Workshops will be led by experienced mentors and artists and will take place from January 2019 till the end of the year; each module will last from 2 to 4 months.

In December, APIS Institute opens applications for different modules: photography, video production, audio production, dance with dance therapy and theatre with the theatre of oppressed. Each module is open for 10 participants. Participants choose one module and with participating in it, they will also be part of the final multimedia performance. All workshops will be in Ljubljana and are free of charge. You can apply HERE.

At the end of the whole training, participants will present their work in a multimedia theatre performance directed by theatre director Ivana Djilas.

More about the workshops

Participants will gain new knowledge from different art areas:

  • audio-visual production (photography with digital and mobile devices, video production with video editing (digital and mobile devices), recording sound and audio production),
  • dance with dance therapy and
  • theatre with the theatre of oppressed.

Modules are designed as an individual whole. Their results will be integrated into the final presentation – multimedia theatre performance, which will be public staged.

Participants will gain theoretical knowledge, but the main focus will be on the practical part of the workshops. In the frame of audiovisual workshops, they will be making photo and video products. Dance workshops will enable participants to discover different use of dance and therapeutic and dance techniques. Last but not least, theatre workshops will provide them with knowledge about theatre acting/performing, reveal a socially engaged approach to art and identify the effects of the theatre of the oppressed.

In a innovative way, the final multimedia theatre show will tackle differentness that opens questions of stigmatizations, criminalization and transformations, potentials of empowerment, mobilizations and proactivity.
