Materiality on Vacation -
Sat, December 9, 14:00 - 17:00 P2
Through exploring different ways of relating to things, surprising connections appear. During this workshop, collective PYL will introduce strategies for rethinking the materiality of everyday objects and revealing the multiplicity of narratives behind them. You will get to know other ways of communication and coexistence through collective playing. You will find out what Living Scenography is and how things “act” and ”speak” to you and each other.
By becoming aware of the relationships between us and our surroundings, we can experience where an object ends, where a landscape starts, and how we fit in it. Based on our shared experience and observations, we can create our new common world with its own language and logic. Is it not the ideas, symbols and feelings that can keep a world together?
Join the workshop if you like playing with objects; if you like to communicate not only with people but also with things; if you are generally a sensitive human that can get inspired by both unpredictable and daily events. No special knowledge or skills are required.

PYL is an international collective of artists who devise together in the field of postdramatic theatre, visual arts, sound and intermedia. Their practice explores the borders of anthropocentric perception in a dialog with objects and ironic attempts to grasp nonhuman agency. Through application of DIY methods, recycling and compilation principles, the group develops its own visual language, which extends the meanings of scenography far beyond the theatre stage. Their works shift cultural codes, contexts and origins of regular things, while transforming objects to beings and beings to objects. Sensitivity towards the dailiness, sharing moments and personal experiences in non- linear and playful ways transmit on the group’s associative approach on coworking process.
