More detailed info, in english:

Sculpting Time is a workshop for professional stage artists that aims to explore urban spaces as alternative stages where various art forms interact in a common creative process.

The poetic transformation of space and the contact of different art forms and broader audiences is the focus of this workshop. Artists from different disciplines will confront own ideas, methods and experiences through discussions and hands on collaborations.

Retazos Dance Theater is a contemporary dance company from Havana Cuba with more than 20 years of experience in outdoor productions and arrangements in Havana. They arrange the festival “Habana Vieja; Ciudad en Movimiento” and also have created a numbers of site specific works in collaboration with important Cuban artists like the painter Manuel Mendive.

Retazos is now developing a cultural exchange project together with Memory Wax from Malmö to promote international cultural exchanges and collaborations in Cuba and Sweden. This workshop will contribute to support and spread this initiative making it more visible and relevant to our community here in Skåne.

We talk about four key steps in the workshop:

1) Understanding the elements (the spaces, the art forms, the communication with the audience in outdoors settings) involved in the workshops, sharing of earlier experiences and common interests.

2) Explore the creative possibilities of the collaborative processes and the potential of the specific elements and resources at hand.

3) Develop dialogue between the different art forms.

4) Create a work which investigate and integrates the creative potential of these elements mentioned above.


a) Open up new creative possibilities for interaction among audiences and artists

b) Explore collaborative, multidisciplinary processes as challenging and inspiring creative experiences.

c) Develop a joint work inspired on the use of alternative spaces that support personal and creative development of all participants.

d) The multiple ways of looking at the architectural space through conceptual proposals in various artistic dialogue with the ephemeral.

The workshop will be held in english.
