John Cage: Europeras 1+2 in der Jahrhunderthalle Bochum im Rahmen der Ruhrtriennale 2012

Ruhrtriennale (2)

The Masterclass enables 3 groups of young artists to realise their own creative visions as part of the Ruhrtriennale festival. The groups are chosen amongst appliers from all over the world. It is the aim of the Ruhrtriennale to select at least 1 group from former Campustriennale College participants. So there is a good chance that students of Pl.ETA are the ones who take part in the Masterclass programme. They will develop performances inspired by this year’s festival theme supported by the dramaturgy team of the Ruhrtriennale of Johan Simons, in collaboration and as coproduction with local theatres in the Region.
Results are presented in two long evenings of theatre 2017 in a series of cities across the Ruhr region.
