WHAT IS IMPORTANT? The topic of the 17th PAStudies is: "What is important?" It is a big question but to begin with we will treat it as a rhetorical one. It is quite normal that people have different values, so what is important to me must is not necessarily important to you. Everybody has their own scale of what is important for oneself. During the workshop we will observe that some subjects are important for more than one person while others remain on the private level. Intersections can appear between the individual borders of others. Opinions and communities of interests can be formulated to form stronger expressions. If we find these intersections in the process, we will be able to transform our own values into signs or images which are readable for more than one person. Through various exercises, tasks and discussions we will discover these intersections and try to explore the question: “What is important in the process of developing, presenting and reflecting a performance art piece?”
