Elisabeth Schilling in collaboration with your city, organisation or venue invites everyone to share their individual or collective experiences and their reflections on the joy of life – an invitation to reunite and also to give strength in those worrying times. Displayed across the City, several beautiful Boxes of Life invite you to participate in an original cross-art project. Postcards form the basis of the research, the ideas for the original choreography and eventually the three dimensional installation at the performance location.
The Box of Life theme can be adapted and renamed to fit with other initiatives and creative ideas such as Joy of Life and many more options.
Boxes of Life
To reach the widest range of the community a number of freestanding boxes should be positioned around the city, either inside public spaces or outside. The scale of this part of the project can vary from City to City and relies on exploring relationships with partners and also driven by the budget available.
What will be happen to the postcards and the thoughts shared?
We will collect all of the answers and collate the diverse experiences, tips and ideas about the many ways of celebrating life. The postcards will form a three dimensional installation in the venue before, during and after the creation and performance of the BOX OF LIFE. They will also provide the starting point for an original choreography, developed with the wider community and choreographer Elisabeth Schilling.
How can the community get involved in the dance performance?
The dance performance will be created throughout 10 workshops. It is recommended they are free and open to all, no previous dance experience is necessary. The project culminates in a number of performances around the post card installation.
Displayed across the City of Luxembourg, several so called Boxes of Life invite you to participate in an original cross-art project. Initiated by the Théâtres de la Ville and created as part of this season’s cycle ‘Mémoires et Résiliences’, the project, which was imagined by Elisabeth Schilling in collaboration with the cultural coordination of the City of Lyembourg and the Lycée des Arts et Métiers, invites everyone to share their individual or collective experiences and their reflections on the joy of life – an invitation to reunite and also to give strength in those worrying times.
