Open Call: Participants wanted for Duets

For a workshop on Wed 23.11. + Thu 24.11. and subsequent performances on Sat 26.11. + Sun 27.11., we are looking for people from Düsseldorf and the surrounding area who are interested in meeting others in a new way and exchanging ideas without words. No previous knowledge or skills are required.


For the Düsseldorf version of its piece Duets, the Temporary Collective from Prague is looking for diverse people in all respects who want to engage in artistic and collaborative processes and thereby enter into physical contact.

Performative duets are developed in which a performer encounters a person unknown to him or her. Each duet explores our perceptions and prejudices as well as our ability to feel closeness and sympathy for and with each other. The meetings will focus on mutual attention and present bodies. The participants of the workshop become both actors and witnesses of these encounters and take these experiences with them. A portrait of people and their relationships emerges.

Participants should bring commitment and openness; no previous knowledge or skills are required. All are welcome!

The workshop language is English (language is not the most important means of communication).The offer is free of charge.

You can find more info about the piece HERE.


The four-hour workshop will take place on Wed 23.11. from 18:00 - 22:00 and alternatively on Thu 24.11. from 10:00 - 14:00.

Participation in the workshop does not oblige you to be on stage for the performances. For participants who would like to take part in the performances, the dress rehearsal will take place on Fri 211 from 17:00 - 20:00. The performances are on Sat 26.11. + Sun 27.11., both at 20:00.
