Every once in a while Bears in the Park opens its doors for workshops and shared practices to a wider audience. People with experience in dance, theater, and performance art are welcome as much as people who merely have an interest in exploring their body, movement, and space, creating writing a.o. Our artists-in-residence are committed to give one workshop per residency, sharing their skills/research/practice but also learning from the participants. The workshops are always free-of-charge.

Bears Workshop Festival

To further increase this shared learning outcome, Bears in the Park organizes once in a while a “Bears Workshop Festival". Interested persons can participate in more than one workshop but also artists-in-residence are encouraged to take part in their colleagues' work to further enhance a spirited exchange of creativity. Breaks and in-between-times are there to connect, eat and relax with each other in our studio kitchen. Upcoming dates will be announced in our News section or on our Instagram channel.

We believe that performance art can be a wonderfully participatory process that holds the possibility to start shared creative processes and also social networks. Professionals and laypeople coming together at Bears in the Park to inspire ideas or just to get some bodies moving.
