What you will do 

Maybe a costume doesn't have to look like a different species, but it does make you feel like a different species. This may be because it manipulates or limits the movement you can do while wearing the costume. The workshop is primarily about empathy, but is strongly focused on experience, context and senses. 
This journey is not only about creating a costume of a plant, animal, fungus, or bacteria; it is about getting in touch with our flora & fauna, trying to think and imagine the perspective of the plant or insect, finding a connection with a chosen organism and establishing a relationship with it by working through various perspectives, patterns, and directions. In short, you will be guided through a personalised lifecycle with your chosen organism. 
The going will be tough! Be ready to fully embrace the life cycle of each creature and become one yourself, both inside and out!

Conny Groenewegen

After completing a study in fashion and visual art, Conny Groenewegen started making drawings. Her research traces back to the origins of methods: revealing and re-establishing the sparkle of manufacturing before the fashionable took its toll. She sheds a new light on production, whilst searching for what is essential and appropriate for organizations and brands. She does so by taking away barriers, preparing reinvigorated procedures for the next step, ready to interact with the world.


Tickets are €.5.
