★ Workshops & Performances ★
True to the vision of Serendubity, the focus of this gathering will be about celebrating individual and cultural diversity while combining/interchanging various aspects of our personal identities, characteristics and rolls in today's society. We want to invite you to see the world through each other's eyes, and experience life from a new perspective.
As always we will be offering a large spectrum of interactive workshops & performances throughout the day and into the night. Here's a little glimpse of the mysteries that shall await you at Mensch Meier on June 18th! The program will begin at 16:00.
Recycled Masks Workshop by Ambra and the Whales
The "recycled masks workshop" is all about transforming and rediscovering yourselves through participation and (re)creation!
"We will start with a mirror, a sheet of paper and a pencil; next you are free to select your own choice of materials from a mishmash of recycled and found objects that have the chance to “be reborn” in a new life.
It’s up to you to find the items that you think fit your face and/or personality best, or the ones that hide your real being, in order to transform yourself into a new creature."
Check out the blog to see some photos from past workshops, including the Serendubity - Rhythm & Space Festival - 2015, and feel free to write for more info or if you would like to join the next workshop at the Serendubity: Sommerdubwende on June 18th! firstname.lastname@example.org

KINETIC STREAM - Interactive audio-visual installation by Xenorama
"Xenorama is a interdisciplinary collective for audio-visual art. They are united by the fascination to use technology to create magic.
Since 2011 they combine expertise in the fields of design, animation, programming, sound design and composition and specializes in immersive experiences, interactive installations and light projection shows.“

„Kinetic Stream is an interactive audio-visual installation that augments the perception of motion.
An infinite stream flows from the wall and fills the floor. It reacts to the visitors and their movements in the room. Each participant is uniquely associated with a musical theme. As more people are walking into the stream the scene gets more turbulent and the harmonic sound reveals a rhythm.“
"Transformagie“ - Magic & Mentalism by Adam Weiss
Adam Weiss ist ein moderner Magier. Er vermischt die Methoden der Hellseher und Wahrsager mit den Techniken der Gaukler und Zauberer.
In seiner Jugend ist er fasziniert von der Zauberkunst und den phantastischen Bildern und Geschichten, die sie entstehen lässt. Später studiert er ausgiebig die Zeit des Spiritismus, der Medien und Hellseher im ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert.
Auf der Bühne kreiert er aus all diesen Einflüssen eine einzigartige Form der Unterhaltung, in der die Gedankenwelt der Zuschauer im Mittelpunkt steht, und die Grenze dessen, was möglich und unmöglich zu sein scheint, zu verschwimmen beginnt.
Egal ob Sie ein beinharter Skeptiker oder offen für die Verheißungen des Unbekannten sind: Lassen Sie sich auf eine faszinierende Reise in die Welt der Gedanken und der Gedankenübertragung einladen: Adam Weiss ist der beste Reiseführer, den Sie finden werden.
