The principles and concepts of Social Sculpture don´t change and stay the same as in the performance variant. The difference is here that the performance starts as a workshop with enrolled participants . During the workshops there will be a workout of the different stages and sequences of the four main axes on which Social Sculpture is based. Creativity draws a line between a passive and an active agenda in people's lives. Creativity starts with questions. This process of discovery is both extraordinarily broad and incredibly relevant to generating strong contextual work and social behavior; regardless of whether we engage socially. Against this background, the sequences of the workshop / performance focus on the behavior of people in a group and an individual. The workshop sometimes confronts the participants and the audience in real, sometimes metaphorically with the situations of the confrontation situation - on their own - against each other. However, the red line of sequences also leads to finding a way to collaborate and create a democratic process.
